Pasta bowl (Makiko Hicher)
She was born in Japan and lives in Montreal, She had exhibited my pottery across Canada and Europe.
The pieces are inspired by the idea of a work of art which, perhaps after a shipwreck, would have sunk to the bottom of the sea, where it would have waited for centuries, alone, gradually covered by algae and shellfish, taking on the colours of the waters surrounding it.
Her work is about both sadness and poetry of lost objects, forsaken by all, on which time, slowly, leaves its marks.
