Mels Boom: Inspiring ceramic artists since1999

Chieko Katsumata

She developed a unique technique to create a personal texture, which has become characteristic for her work.

Chieko Katsumata's pieces have a extraordinary surface. The hard grog she uses gives an unexpected velvety impression, which matches well with the natural forms and emphasises their organic and sensual character. Her sculptures seem to flower softly and come to life. Moreover, they seem to hide something mysterious.
