Sueharu Fukami (Kyoto - )


About

One of the most distinguished Japanese ceramists of his generation, Kyoto’s Sueharu Fukami (1947- ) wishes to express the ‘infinite space’ that lies beyond the supple curves and sharp silhouettes of his abstract porcelain sculptures, lusciously drenched in the delicate translucency of the artist’s signature pale-blue seihakuji glaze. The triumphant edges and arches borne from Fukami’s minimal forms represent what cannot be tangibly seen: the circularity of life and the continuity of space itself. With works in over 60 public collections, in particular the British Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Metropolitan Museum in New York City, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Musée national de Céramique-Sèvres and many others, Fukami has contributed to defining and expanding the meaning, importance, and popularity of contemporary Japanese ceramics to collectors and museums the world over.
