Hiroko Fukushima

I want to express the beauty and power of blue through porcelain.
I expand my image of patterns from the form of a vessel, and freely use several types of asbolite, and repeated drawing and erasing; these processes create the unique matière (texture effect) allowing me to explore cobalt blue designs and patterns while making full use of the distinctive quality of clay.
