Shomura Hisaki (b. 1974)

Shōmura Hisaki studied industrial chemistry in college and eventually attended Arita College of Ceramics before working at his family kiln under his father Shōmura Ken. Shirotae-ji represents works through which the artist seeks to perfect the silky white hue of porcelain. To create subtle designs only using the color white, he experiments with transparent glazes and simple patterns. As an emerging young artist from Arita, he has already won numerous awards at competitions such as the Japan Traditional Art Crafts Exhibition and has held solo exhibitions in various cities in Japan
