Windswept - Porcelain Sculpture by Kino Satoshi
Windswept will be the second solo exhibition with the young, talented Kino Satoshi (b.1987) at Joan B. Mirviss Ltd., starting April 21. Kino Satoshi is celebrated for his billowing, ribbon-like porcelain sculptures glazed in a soft seihakuji (bluish-white) glaze.
The natural elements of air and water are the artist's principal, current source of inspiration. It is both their power and gentility that Kino strives to evoke in his sculptural interpretations. In these works, Kino conjures powerful wind gusts as they descend from mountain slopes, in turns swirling, billowing or wafting, often disrupting the landscape in their path.
