Biography

     Yukiya Izumita (b. 1966) is the leading ceramicist of Japan’s northeast Tohoku arts region. From his kiln in Iwate prefecture’s Noda village, Izumita constructs layered sculptures that reflect the harsh seaside culture. Built from salt-rich clay collected from the coastal beaches, Izumita’s tiered sculptures come to resemble the strange and fantastical natural formations of rock and sand. Izumita is the recipient of the 20th Biennial Japanese Ceramic Art Exhibition’s Excellence Award and the Grand Prize at the Asahi Ceramic Exhibitions of 2000 and 2002. His pieces are in collections including the Yale University Art Gallery, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Iwate Museum of Art.
