 Anton Kern Gallery is currently hosting Shio Kusaka, a solo exhibition.
May 23 - June 22, 2013

Shio Kusaka is a Japanese ceramic artist well known 
for her beautiful asymmetrical pottery. Kusaka will
present 127 porcelain and stoneware pots.

Anton Kern, 520 West 20th street, NYC.

Her vessels are irregular with slight unevenness,
the result is she builds delicate structures of graceful imperfection,
with well centered weight and gravity.

Kusaka has developed a distinct formal language through
the use of her shapes, patterns, colors and glazing techniques.
