Ikuzo Fujiwara


 Ayato Fujiwara
Ayato Fujiwara, 31, is part of the ceramic revolution in Japan, creating human figures of significant size, with intimate attention to expression, in a medium once exclusively reserved for pottery.
Fujiwara’s large scale human figure sculpting in ceramics is revolutionary, and the size of his expressive pieces distinguishes him at an early age. His sculptures murmur, speak, and communicate in a most modern way through this most traditional of media.
Fujiwara holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Tokyo University of Fine Arts.
