    Ken Matsuzaki- Major Exhibition
    24 July 2021 - 29 Aug 2021

    This latest exhibition will showcase 120 pots, among them 50 vases in Matsuzaki’s innovative Tokaiseki style. A technique of Matsuzaki’s own invention, these sculptural works are not thrown but hewn, carved and torn from hollowed blocks of clay on a potter’s wheel using a variety of tools – from knives and wooden scrapers to wire, fingers, thumbs and even fistfuls of clay itself. Developed over many years, these forms now represent a distillation of Matsuzaki’s enigmatic, tour-de-force approach to his medium.


  • Artist - Ken Matsuzaki - Biography
    Ken Matsuzaki was born in 1950 in Tokyo. Growing up Matsuzaki’s life was filled with art and culture and his family’s influence began to show when, around the age of 16, Matsuzaki developed an interest in ceramics. In 1972, after graduating from Tamagawa University’s College of Arts, he began a 3 year apprenticeship with (National Living Treasure) Tatsuzo Shimaoka.
    Nearing the end of his apprenticeship Matsuzaki asked Shimaoka if he would consider extending it for another 2 years, whilst he learned to develop his own style, and began creating his own motifs and palette of glazes that he would use for the next 15 years. Today, Matsuzaki has exhibited widely in Japan, America and the UK and his work is held in major galleries worldwide.
