Misako Kido

Born and raised in Australia by Japanese parents, I moved to Tokyo after graduating high school. I have been creating many different ranges of ceramic works since studying pottery in 2016 at Izumi Togei Institute, from jewelry to tableware, plant pots/vases, and sculptural work.
I use different clays, firing methods, and building techniques to produce my work. All my glazes are handmade, and the crystalline glaze I use for most of my work is made from an original recipe. Lichens and moss plants have been my motif in recent work. These gentle and silent little natures are so beautiful and fascinating to me. The way they grow, the colors, textures, and patterns they create have been an inspiration to my work.
