2019 Artists


Tamae Frame

My work portrays various spiritual and psychological states.
I observe my feelings; then I await the one that comes forth. I catch the impression that resonates with me on a deeper level.

I often draw inspiration from the ancient sacred arts. Especially I am fascinated by the look and feel of the aged surfaces of old sculptures. My attempt is to create interesting surfaces that have those similar qualities to them.

The ceramic arts drive me to be spontaneous and imaginative. I enjoy the tactile sensation of the clay when my subconscious comes through. The glaze firing excites me every time I take out my work from the kiln. It keeps my interest in achieving surfaces that resonate with my concepts.

I use earthenware clay that I fire with glazes and underglazes in my electrical kiln. Sometimes I apply colored wax over the glazed piece to add color depth to the sculpture.
