New Work for August - Hitomi McKenzie


Hitomi Mckenzie works with porcelain. She makes functional shapes and individual pieces, combining beauty and function working in harmony, their forms giving the user a sense of joy. Hitomi likes to create communication, a ‘conversation’ between form and surface, each piece becoming an extension of how she responds to the movement of the wheel and the clay.

The work is thrown, then she dissects and distorts the shapes. The throwing rings are exaggerated to give the impression of folds of fabric, and a shiny transparent glaze is used to give a highly polished finish.
