Join JASM on Thursday, March 30 at 6:00 p.m. (CT) on Zoom for an Artist Talk with Japanese ceramics artist, Hitomi Hosono! She will discuss the processes and inspiration behind the works in her exhibition On the Surface: Flora Inspired Ceramics of Hitomi Hosono, on exhibition at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum in Winona, MN January 28 through April 30, 2023. On the Surface features 16 porcelain vessels of Hosono's, whose intricate floral creations in white porcelain are inspired by her Japanese heritage and a mastery of the English ceramic traditions.
Please support JASM to continue with our mission and activities.
Hitomi Hosono is a Japanese ceramist based in London, UK.
Demonstrating a mastery of Japanese and English ceramics traditions, her detailed porcelain vessels reference the flora of the natural world. The delicacy of
their chalk-like finish and gold embellishments captivate. Using the sprig-mold technique—a process that uses thin ceramic reliefs, or “sprigs,” applied as surface decoration—Hosono captures the precise detail of botanical forms. The dense layers of sprigs evoke the surfaces of leaves on tree branches. Her work has attracted the patronage of curators from the British Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum.
