Gen Hoshino (1973 Kyoto)
Education completed at the Nara University of Education in 1996, followed by further education at the Pottery and Design Institute in Tajimi City up to and including 2003. Begins to exhibit from 2003 onwards mainly in Japan later also in Korea, Taiwan and in Finland (2013) and the Czech Republic. In 2018 In Oldenburg and Gmunden (A) Gen Hoshino makes molded dishes and vases in porcelain. On its surface, he applies free-motion porcelain slib trails, which we find as relief marks under celadon glaze. He shapes his dishes in an elegant leaf shape or he cuts it in an inventive free form, a shard, a wing. His beautiful celadon gives his work a very lively appearance, the color changed with the light and the kind of light in which you look at it. In candlelight this is deep and mysterious in sunlight airy and ethereal.
