Shingo Takeuchi demonstration at Northern Beaches Ceramics

March 8, 2016

Japanese ceramist Shingo Takeuchi is exhibiting his work in Australia during March at UNSW Art and Design ADSPACE from the 21st to 24th March 2016 .

He will also be sharing his knowledge, experience and techniques during a talk and demonstration at Northern Beaches Ceramics on Friday the 1st of April 2016.

This is a fantastic opportunity to gain insight into the work of a Seto potter right here on the Northern Beaches.


Both organic and geometric, Takeuchi’s stoneware ceramics present a dramatic illusion of form and process. The vessels are balanced in earthy patternation and bold labyrinthine arcs, calling to mind the almost-born states of seeds and eggs: the hollows of the vessels seeming to have pushed at their borders and spiraled into being. Drawing on thirty years of technical development, Takeuchi’s mastery of hand building and reduction cooling carved out a distinct formal identity in contemporary Japanese ceramics, and are exhibited in Sydney for the first time.



Takeuchi Shingo was born in 1955, in Seto, one of the oldest ceramic capitals of Japan. Following the tradition of the famous masters and studios of the period, he studied at the Aichi Prefectural Ceramics Research Facility, and became the apprentice of renowned ceramic master Kato Shuntei II. In 1982 Takeuchi established his independent practice, defined by his signature earthy geometric forms created through technical hand building and reduction cooling techniques. Over the past thirty years Takeuchi’s work has been exhibited at international ceramic biennales and exhibitions, and features in numerous private and public collections including the Seto Musuem, The Korean International Ceramics Foundation collection, and Yingge Ceramics Museum Taiwan.
