Suzuki Osamu: Image in Clay Kyoto Exhibit

One of Japan's most preeminent potters Suzuki Osamu will be on display this summer at Kyoto's National Museum of Modern Art.

Suzuki, who lived from 1926 - 2001, was born in Kyoto, the third son of the pottery wheel worker Suzuki Ugenji, who worked in the House of Sen.

Trained by his father from an early age, Suzuki-fils decided to become a ceramic artist following World War II.

He went on to establish in 1948 the avant-garde ceramist group "Sodeisha" with Yagi Kazuo and Yamada Hikaru.

They used motifs such as horses and birds, as well as natural phenomena such as wind and clouds.

For cyclists, it is a short easy ride from central Kyoto to the Okazaki museum area.
