    Takashi Hinoda’s chimerical work draws inspiration from manga, anime and American comics. He works in what he terms “2.5 dimensions” whereby descriptive decoration serves to embellish the three-dimensional forms. At other times the decoration is largely unrelated to the ceramic body, which becomes a surface simply for two-dimensional expression.

    Hinoda was caught up in the Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995 and as a result has spoken of his feelings about the helplessness and fragility of the human world. The twisted nature of many of his works stems from an anxiety towards modern civilisation.

    His work has been collected internationally, with pieces entering numerous public collections including:
    The National Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan
    Musée de la Ville de Vallauris, France
    The Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park, Shiga, Japan
    Arizona State University Art Museum, USA
