Ryosaku Miwa
Contemporary Ceramic
Japanese, b. 1940
Ryosaku Miwa was born in the Yamaguchi prefecture of Japan in 1940. Coming from the rather isolated seacoast town of Hagi, near Korea, and from a family noted for its traditionally simple, sturdy teabowls, he has become a sophisticated artist who spends much of his time in urban Tokyo, and has travelled extensively in the United States. He studied painting in 1959 in Tokyo, before attending Tokyo Fine Arts University, where he received his M.F.A. in ceramic art. His professional studio career from 1966 on has been centered in Tokyo, where he has since exhibited regularly with the Sodeisha Ceramic Group. The artist's pieces reveal a strong sense of humor and sexual innuendo, and are often wheelthrown of Hagi clay, the rough, sandy, local clay, with the creamy-white glaze, of his family's teabowls.
Extracted from "6 Young Japanese Ceramic Artists, Jun Kaneko, 1970.
