Hiroyuki Onuki

Born in Mito City, Ibaraki Prefecture in 1961. After graduating from the Department of Design at Tokyo Zokei University, he worked as a graphic designer before training in pottery at the Ceramics Guidance Center in Ibaraki Prefecture. In 1995, he opened his kiln independently in Kasama City. The technique is made when clay is cut out into a plate shape and a paste shape is made. First, the blueprint is drawn, and the color, arrangement, picture, etc. are decided and molded. The colorful flower motif expressed by the technique of line inlay and color painting is revived vividly by deformed and brings out the form of the vessel. In addition to working in solo, special and group exhibitions in Japan and overseas, he is also involved in the production of ceramic walls in public facilities.
