About Takahiro KONDO

Takahiro KONDO is an immensely talented teacher and artist in all senses and has profound knowledge about the world of clay in Japan in the 20th and 21st centuries. Born in Kyoto into a family celebrated for its traditional sometsuke (cobalt blue and-white porcelain), Takahiro KONDO has striven to determine his own independent artistic identity through extensive experimentation. He quickly developed his own style by incorporating other materials such as metal and cast glass into his work. His experimentation resulted in his unique “silver mist” (gintekisai) glaze. Takahiro KONDO’s work has appeared in solo and group exhibitions worldwide including Japan, Australia, China, Brazil, and throughout the United States. His work is part of many public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK; and The Paper Museum, Tokyo.
