ARTIST PROFILE
Guest Artist

Inayoshi Osamu
At Clay Space
February 3, 4, 5
Renowned Japanese artist, Inayoshi Osamu, will be at Clay Space, February 3, 4 and 5. Inayoshi was introduced to the Pacific NW during the NCECA Conference held in Seattle in 2012. Born in 1976 in Toyohashi City, Japan, Inayoshi completed his training at Seto Pottery School in Japan. His work and ceramic pieces have received much acclaim in his native country. Inayoshi creates exquisite hand built tea bowls and sake cups, using simple tools and extraordinary skills. During the workshop he will present his oh-so-simple technique – handbuilding clay forms over molds with a smooth river rock and then finishing on a banding wheel with wooden trim tools. This simple and naturalistic approach embodies the unique Japanese aesthetic, wabi-sabi. Wabi-sabi nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect. Inayoshi will be both demonstrating and providing hands-on opportunities during this workshop. He hopes to return to Eugene for the kiln unloading of workshop produced tea bowls at the end of his PNW tour. 

After completing this US workshop tour, he will return to Japan for one man shows in both Tokyo and Osaka. Reserve your seat now for this wonderful opportunity to observe and learn from a young, gifted and respected Japanese artist.
