Born in Miyagi Prefecture in 1965. Goto Hideki後藤秀樹 (b. 1973) is a ceramic artist based in Tajimi City. After graduating from Tajimi Technical High School, where he studied ceramics, he participated in public exhibitions, solo exhibitions, and group exhibitions. When he makes pottery, he thinks about the origin of pottery, which is to put stones on clay and fire it, and he values the encounter with various materials such as clay and stones. He continues to produce ceramics titled "Shino Watatsumi," which is characterized by the undulating forms of the clay and the varied texture of the Shino glaze. His works maintain the simple taste that comes from being close to the temperament of the clay, and celebrate the rich expressions that remind us of various natural scenes such as the sea and snow.
