Kazuhito Kawai’s quest for ugly beauty in ceramic art

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

The polychromatic clay vessels of Japanese artist Kazuhito Kawai are quite spectacular, the cascade of small, amorphous, textured forms like lava erupting from a volcano.

Kawai’s path to ceramic art was far from linear. Born in Kasama, in Ibaraki prefecture, Japan, he studied at London’s Chelsea College of Art and Design, graduating with a degree in fine art in 2007.

That year, disillusioned with his future as an artist, he returned to Japan with a sense of failure and spent several years in Tokyo.
