Bio

Tashima Etsuko’s sculptures are drawn from nature and consist of large, colorful biomorphic forms. Her earlier work incorporated a wide array of polychrome glazes, but in the past decade she has refined her palette and streamlined her forms, combining pastel colored glass elements with porcelain bodies to make elegant and dazzling flower-like "cornucopia" sculptures. These works have captivated both critics and collectors, while garnering her prestigious awards.
