Morino Taimei 森野泰明 b. 1934

Morino's work continues to combine tradition and innovation while expressing his dedication to the deeply complex concept of modern beauty. 

Morino Taimei (also known as Morino Hiroaki Taimei)'s repertoire of avant-garde ceramics consists of colourful, polychrome geometric motifs that translate traditional Kyoto-based glaze methods into contemporary mediums. Influenced by Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism in the 1960s, his work follows the tenets of rejecting traditional folk-craft forms observed by the avant-garde group Sodeisha.
