Biography   Akio Takamori


Akio Takamori's ceramic sculptures evoke an eerie sense of reality and presence.

Another body of Akio's work consists of ceramic vessels, often painted with erotic images.

Takamori was born in 1950 in Nobeoka, Miyazaki, Japan. He studied art at Masashino Art College, Tokyo, before moving to the U.S. in 1974. He received a BFA at the Kansas City Art Institute in 1976 and an MFA at Alfred University in New York in 1978. Since 1993 he has been a faculty member in the University of Washington School of Art.
