The World of Satoshi Sutou


He mixes the two types of clay, shapes it, puts on white makeup, then applies a white glaze to produce a deeply earthy white.

His work is engraved and small points are pushed carefully one by one before the soil dries.

He is trying to express the stereoscopic effect throughout the work, aiming at the gradation effect by subtly changing the size of the point on the work.

Altough the modeling of his work is imaged hard and linear crystals, he is consciously trying not to forget the likeness of earthy objects.

He is aiming for manufacturing that can impress people.
