Work


Both ceramics and glass artist, Yukiko Murata combines in her creative oeuvre the traditional Japanese sensibility and technique with a special interest in allegory and Nature. Her works and her art are born of the psychological game of figurative representation and metaphorical insinuation, where things are sometimes unfold and its apparent meaning is diluted. A functional piece, for Murata, can bring satisfaction to its mission and also carry an implicit message that often refers to nature or the Japanese tradition. A sensibility that has the ultimate end of the search for beauty.
