Makoto Kagoshima's Ceramics Exhibition

Makoto Kagoshima, based in Kyushu, the southern island of Japan, illustrates whimsical and heart-warming motifs on clay, making each ceramic object a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art.

Kagoshima's designs are all done freehand. Forms are drawn in pencil on the dried clay then blocks of colour are applied using a paintbrush.

Fine lines are then scratched out to give detail, using the improvised tool of a dentist's pick and the broken rib of an umbrella.
