Yumiko Goto – Artist of the Month

Yumiko Goto February 2015A native of Japan, Yumiko Goto received her BFA in ceramics from the Cleveland Institute of Art and her MFA from the University of Florida. “I try to capture the delicacy and temporality of life in my sculptures,” says Yumiko. “I am influenced by transformations that happen in nature and the philosophy of the ever-changing life cycle.”

Thrown on the pottery wheel and then altered, the earthenware container shown here is part of Yumiko’s “Secret Vessel” series. The lid is so carefully crafted that the viewer may not even notice it at first glance.

Stop in the gallery during the month of February and enter our drawing to win Yumiko’s creation; no purchase necessary.
