Aiko Takamori: Owl Vases

Akio Takamori is a ceramist artist born in Nobeoka, Miyazaki, Japan in 1950, now lives and works in Seattle. He creates unique sculptures of animals, villagers, school children, shopkeepers and infants from his memory. His work has been strongly influenced by his Japanese heritage, and been awarded and displayed in several solo exhibitions. His pieces can be found for sale worldwide at galleries and auctions. I am enamored with the owl vessels!
