About Keiichi Tanaka
Keiichi Tanaka’s work spans from a lifelong fascination with the beauty of functional objects. Inspired by the visual poetry of agricultural tools and instruments, Tanaka creates softly textured glazes and unexpected shapes for otherwise common-use objects. His rustic, contemporary pieces clash with archaic shapes to invoke an atmosphere of "time accumulation": hazy, textured objects that could be remnants of a long-ago past or a not-so-distant future. Tanaka has exhibited widely throughout Japan and Europe, and currently lives in Saitama, Japan.
