Hattori Makiko is a Japanese artist working to create shapes resembling functional pots, then applying ribbons of porcelain to tightly fill the entire pot surface. Not following a design or motif she prefers to work in a meditative state on this repetitive procedure adding minute parts to complete the whole surface in total continuity.
Hattori says this about her work,
‘I would be happy if the audience can immediately be drawn into the work before any other explanation because of the visual and tactile impact of the surface.
The work involves an incessantly repetitive process, nonetheless I never get tired with this Zen-like operation. I confront this long procedure with a very relaxed transcendent state of mind’
