Piece made by hand in Noe Kuremoto's workshop in London.
Noe Kuremoto is a ceramic artist who makes everything by hand using simple tools. She is known for her playful sculptural works that take the form of ancient Japanese clay figurines. Her works combine childlike simplicity with contemporary sophistication, and integrate her training in fine arts and design with her cultural heritage. She shares the traditional Japanese view that spirits are everywhere, especially in nature – for Noe, the truth of our universe can be found in the wilderness. Its centerpiece is its interpretation of an ancient talisman – “Haniwa” “Dogu” “Toro” – which invites the spirit of nature into people's homes in the simplest form possible. It is representative of her desire to make a deeper connection in a world that can often seem superficial. "I hope that each piece I create will help my sons see the world as a beautiful place. My artistic work is my journey to strengthen my soul. I would like to share them with you. A talisman for having the courage to live our life as sincerely as possible.
His ceramics are like a beautiful dream that his hands, fire and clay transform into reality.
Noe was born in Osaka, Japan, and graduated with honors in fine arts from Central Saint Martins College of Art. She works and lives in London with her family and her dog Lassie.
