Hoshino Satoru

Country: Japan

visited in 2013

Workshop: Ceramics

Hoshino’s oeuvre includes large-scale installations that can fill entire rooms as well as more intimate objects that can be held in one’s hands. The hand is a visible and prominent element in his works, and when he uses glazes, he allows them to pool and drip rhythmically on the interior and exterior of the works. It is precisely this purposeful engagement of the hand and the material that makes the sculpture appealing, as the artist allows the process of forming and glazing to be his subject
