Based in Kyushu, the southern island of Japan, Makoto Kagoshima’s celebrated ceramics are a fusion of design and heartwarming motifs making each object a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art. His hand produced and decorated works are designed with a variety of plants and animals remembered from his childhood. They speak of whimsy and elegance and an almost quixotic sense of a fleeting pleasure somehow caught. Makoto first showed with us at Messums Wiltshire as part of a collaboration with John Julian Ceramics where he was decorating plates for a joint show of their work.
We are delighted to represent Makoto’s work exclusively in Europe and to be hosting his second ever solo show.
