Yoshimi Hosoda

Yoshimi Hosoda’s modern design sensibility leads her to make wonderfully contemporary works. She uses stoneware as well as porcelain as throws primarily cups, vases and other functional pieces on the potter’s wheel. Her work is intended to meet the need for hand-made artisan pottery with innovative modernist designs. She strives for striking forms with refreshingly minimalist decoration, while avoiding the whimsical or cute.

Yoshimi Hosoda Artist Statement

Pottery has been a part of our lives since ancient times, and brings with it ten thousand years of history. While I find this deep well of tradition both fascinating and inspiring, it can also weigh us down and hold us back.

I feel that pottery design has not evolved with the same speed as our lifestyles and homes. I fear that contemporary pottery risks losing relevancy to a large segment of the population if it does not advance with the fast-moving design trends of our global urban culture.

My work is intended to meet the need for hand-made artisan pottery with innovative modernist designs. I strive for striking forms with refreshingly minimalist decoration, while avoiding the whimsical or cute. My pottery is meant for people who appreciate and celebrate modern living and modern art.
