Potter's Talk with Yoshinori Hagiwara

Sunday, April 30, 2017 from 2:00 - 4:00PM

Pucker Gallery, 240 Newbury Street, 3rd floor, Boston, MA

Yoshinori Hagiwara
was born in 1974 as a fifth generation member of the Hagiwara family ceramic workshop and currently resides in Mashiko, Japan. He studied and researched at the Tochigi Prefectural Ceramics Instructional Institute, and his work has been selected for inclusion and awarded numerous prizes at the Japanese National Art Exhibition for several years. Hagiwara’s recent ceramics have broadened beyond his well-known persimmon glaze to incorporate yellow kaki, blue nuka, and namijiro glazes into his artistic vocabulary. He has created his own expression using these glazes, and exhibits great mastery in his elegant forms. In 2014, Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry designated Hagiwara as a "Traditional Craftsman." His ceramics are included in significant public collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Ceramic Art at Alfred University in Alfred, New York and the Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art in Haifa, Israel. His work has been exhibited by Pucker Gallery since 2010.
