Note: Actual colours may vary due to photography & computer settings.
Clay changes to various colors according to how they are fired, and it has been my motivation to try on different conditions to find out the unexpected outcome. The gradation of the vase was born after it was buried in rice husks. It looks as if it was a small universe.

Nozomi Fujii was born in 1976 in Mie Prefecture, Japan. During her childhood, she was obsessed with the idea of creating things by her own as well as the systematic process of making , which eventually became the source of her creative ceramic artworks.
She graduated from Shizuoka University Faculty of Agriculture Department of Forest Resource Science in 1999. The technical methods of research she learnt in the university also constructed her current style of ceramic creation.
She studied ceramic art at Tokoname City Municipal Ceramic Art Laboratory for one year. She has participated in domestic solo & group exhibitions since 2009.
In 2020, she was invited to 1000 VASES in Paris.
What makes Nozomi focused on using pottery wheels in her works, is the absolute limitation given by its concentrical movement, which only allows her to shape clays symmetrical.
In order to bring out natural colors as well as a character of original texture from clays themselves, she does not use glaze. By doing so, the artist can extract the primitive sense of non-materialistic ancient times, and visualize them in a modern style.
