Explore the Lush, Nature-Inspired Work and Studio of Ceramicist Hitomi Hosono
Hosono’s first interaction with ceramics came through her family. She reminisces about her grandfather, a tiling artist who decorated the family home: “It felt like we were living in his work of art. My grandfather and his work have been an enormous inspiration.” Hosono studied the art of ceramics in Japan before moving to London to study at the Royal College of Art. Carrying on the training received in Japan, elements of British life—from local greenery to pottery techniques typical of British manufacturer Wedgwood’s Jasperware—have become important artistic influences on her work.
