Eiko Maeda: Flat Bottom Bowl in Blue, Pink and Grey



Eiko’s signature pieces are hand built and based on a tradition founded in Chinese and Japanese ceramics called Nerikomi. To make these various patterns, coloured clay is stacked in a precise manner and sliced through the cross section to form small blocks. These blocks are assembled together to make a pattern sheet. The patterns therefore differ from those created by painting glaze. Hand crafted each will slightly vary in colour, pattern, size, and weight.  Venice Exhibition: The bowls are inspired by the objects in the exhibition and exclusive to the Gardiner Shop.

About The Artist

Eiko Maeda

Eiko Maeda graduated from Joshibi University of Art and Design in Tokyo, Japan. She is currently based in Woodbridge, Ontario. Maeda trained in ceramics at the Visual Arts Center in Montreal, and learned nerikomi (a traditional Japanese hand-building technique) under Eiji Murofushi in Fuji, Japan. In nerikomi, coloured clay is stacked together and sliced through in cross-sections to form small blocks. These blocks are then carefully pressed together to create repeating patterns and sliced into thin slabs. The slabs are draped over uniquely carved plaster molds to form vessel forms.
