One to watch: Hitomi Hosono, ceramicist

See video

With pieces in renowned museums such as the the V&A, not to mention the array of craftsmanship awards under her wheel, there is no question that Hitomi Hosono's star is rising fast.

Born and raised in the Gifu Prefecture in Japan, an area known for its rich pottery tradition, clay and ceramics were firmly rooted in her environment (she recalls that at secondary school ‘everybody was making something out of clay’). Working in London today, she aims to create pieces inspired by her fascination with British botany, while drawing upon her Japanese heritage.

In this video, she tells Kasia Fiszer about the inspiration behind her intricate pieces, including an inside scoop on her latest creation.

For the full feature on Hitomi’s work, see Homes & Antiques’ September issue, out Thursday 20th August.
