YUMIKO SHINOZAKI
ceramic artist.
Yumiko Shinozaki was born in 1987 in Fukuoka Prefecture and completed her M.A. at Osaka University of Arts Graduate School in 2011.
Although the viewer may recall candies or toys from its colorful and fancy appearances, the texture of her works cracks and air bubbles are rather raw and organic, and highly haptic. Its unique figure triggers the viewer to an uneasy state as though when encountering something you'd never experienced before, while at the same time stimulates the viewer's curiosity and evokes creativity.
