f0003788_135069.jpg

この度ニュージーランドのオークランドにある
TÜRにて、私の器をご紹介いただけることになりました。
2人のオーナーさん達自身もそれぞれがアーティストで、
織をされていたり、洋服やジュエリーを作られていたりして。
彼らの作る作品と同じように、ギャラリーもシックな雰囲気で素敵。
Launch nightを開催してくださります。
とにかく器が無事に到着したようで一安心ですが、
私の器、ニュージーランドの人はどう思うのかなあ。
大丈夫かな。どきどき。
海外発送、ただでさえ心配性の私は
割れずに器が到着するまで心配で心配でしょうがない。
もうほんと後ろからついていきたい。
でも無事に到着したと聞いたときにはすごく嬉しいし、
ご紹介くださる側だって
同じように労力も時間も経費もかけて、
私の変な英語にもつきあってくれて、
それでも私の器を紹介したいと
思ってくださる気持ちが何よりほんとに嬉しいです。

[Interviewed by TÜR]
Yuko lives in Osaka, Japan with her family in their home and studio where she paints and makes ceramic works. Ikeda officially trained in graphic design in California but upon moving back to Japan she became interested in the art of pottery. Yuko is an autodidact and learnt her craft independently through various sources. Seventeen years later Yuko is now a full time practising ceramicist exhibiting frequently in Japan and abroad. We are proud to present her first show in Aotearoa.

Of her work Yuko says "I want to create items that can be used in everyday life. I think ceramics are a little piece of art that can be used and or just sit right beside you in your daily life. However, I want to make pieces that are not only useful but also special. A dish itself holds a presence, yet it brings out the best of any cuisine and complements another. Why I stick to making tableware is that I think eating is one of the main purposes to living. It’s both an art and a need for our physical health and aids our mental health. Nowadays, the world has become increasingly complicated and we have too many choices, but I believe we really need is the simple things in life. Creating works that are related to eating represents living and life to me personally."
