Naomichi SATO

Naomichi Sato lives and works in his self-built atelier on Okinawa Island in the south of Japan. He started his career as a sculptor and his works has a wonderful feeling of solidity with a rough, craft-like texture. With his playful imagination, he paints patterns and marks individually on the vessels, using coloured slips and sgraffito technique. These pieces have the cheerfulness and warmth of handcraft.┬áSato’s work conveys the eclecticism and relaxing atmosphere of life on a southern island.
