Kuraoka Says to Know: Akio Takamori

Akio Takamori is an incredibly influential ceramic sculptor who teaches at University of Washington in Seattle.  This Japanese-American artist has been sculpting figurative pieces with an illustrative quality for over 25 years.  I think his most recognizable signature is the outlining of the surface that echoes Japanese brush painting or calligraphy and incites a unique discussion about dimension in sculpture.  This two-dimensional aspect of his work is incredibly illustrated by the photographs which accompany some of the figures above.  Notice how easily his three-dimensional work translates into a two-dimensional work of equal substantiality.
