Katsuyo Aoki’s flowering ceramic sculptures

Katsuyo Aoki describes in her artist statement that she uses ceramics in her method of expression, incorporating differenct decorative styles, patterns, and symbols to create her work. The forms included in Aoki’s works each contain a story from historical backgrounds, ideas, myths, and allegories. Their existence causes one to feel many different things from adoration to disgust depending on where attention is focused or whether or not one decides to find meaning. From one point of view, Katsuyo’s works can make one feel a tranquility and mystic awe that can be compared to feelings brought about by religious beliefs. By creating these works from such influences the artist feels the ability to express an atmosphere that embodies a part of the extremely complex world that we find ourselves in. See her work below!
