Exhibition

FORMING A VOICE
New Sculpture by Fujino Sachiko

For her third exhibition at Joan B Mirviss LTD, Fujino Sachiko (b. 1950) presents evocative sculptures in FORMING A VOICE. Her earlier explorations in both geometric forms and organic blooms merge to find new expression here—intricate artworks are built upon strong, balanced shapes of spheres and wedges and crowned with soft, irregular folds in velvety gray-black or creamy white.

Fujino began her studies and early career in the world of fashion-design in Kyoto. A pottery class in the 1980s first introduced her to the ceramic world and resulted in her becoming the student of the pioneering, female ceramic artist Tsuboi Asuka (b. 1932), herself a pupil of the celebrated Tomimoto Kenkichi (1886-1963).

Her work has been highly awarded both nationally and internationally. Museums such as the Faenza International Ceramic Museum, Italy; Kyoto City Cultural Museum; Minneapolis Institute of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art; and Yale University Art Gallery, to name a few, hold her artwork in their collections.
