The 2nd potter I wanted to share was Chikako Kojima, who has been based in nyc since 2005.
Her work has appeared in Café Life New York, as well as in several catalogs from Morozoff, the Japanese maker of chocolate, cake and other confectioneries. She has also shown at galleries in Soho and Tribeca. Kojima also maintains an active blog where she posts scrumptious photos of her work as a vessel for food.
Kojima’s work seeks beauty in texture and surface, a stark contrast to the energy and form that shapes Aoki’s work. What I find so admirable is the lack of arbitrariness. It reclaims the notion that thrilling and beautiful can still emerge out of the realm of the decorative.
