Tomoko Sakumoto terlahir di Okayama, Jepang. Ia mempelajari pendidikan seni, dengan fokus pada keramik, sebelum kemudian mengambil jalur pascasarjana dalam keramik di bidang desain. Ia mengganggap jenjang-jenjang proses yang banyak dalam keramik sebagai sesuatu yang menantang dan tidak membosankan.

Karya-karyanya menampilkan pola-pola garis yang menjadi bertemu dengan bentuk tiga dimensional padat keramik. Bentuk dan pola yang tergaris adalah citraan-citraan dari dalam kepalanya, yang merupakan hasil dari proses kekriaan, atau perbincangan antar bahan. Garis-garis yang dibuatnya merupakan pertumpukan dari bahan keramik sendiri yang telah diwarnai. Nuansa kesederhanaan juga dipertahankan olehnya lewat pilihan un- tuk membuat karya-karyanya dengan teknik mencetak.

Tomoko Sakumoto was born in Okayama. She studied art education, majoring in ceramics; before . going to graduate schoolto study ceramic further from design viewpoint. Her rather simple approach and visual of works counter reflects the many processes in ceramics, which is not boring.

Her works mainly show the intersection of stripe pattern with the solid of ceramics. Such form and patterns are drawn from imaging in mind, which passes through the craft processes or conversation of materials. She makes a lot of parts which I cast clay that added a color to into a plaster mold, and the form of the art object and a color of the stripe have been laid by piling up them. The production using the plaster mold is the method that she arrived at to draw a straight line necessary to express the simple beauty.

Artist statement

I create works for the beauty that a stripe pattern intersects the solid of ceramics. The form and the pattern are imaging in my mind passing through the crafts processes or conversation of materials.

I make a lot of parts which I cast clay that added a color to into a plaster mold, and the form of the art object and a color of the stripe have been laid by piling up them. The production using the plaster mold is the method that I arrived at to draw a straight line necessary to express the simple beauty.

The parallel lines which spread without determining it while snuggling up nearest, and crossing, the stripe is the meeting. I hope it to become more attractive in what is expressed by the feel of a material of ceramics.
