Lot Essay

Ogawa Machiko graduated from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music in 1969 and has travelled widely, including living and studying in Paris at the École d'Arts et Métiers (1969-71) and then in Burkina Faso, West Africa (1972-75). Her "vessels" draw deeply from nature, with pieces resembling glacial ice, others with a volcanic, cracked earth appearance.

Amongst other awards, in 2001 she was awarded the Japan Ceramic Society Prize and she has exhibited widely. Her works have entered significant public collections including the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, Yale University Art Gallery and Los Angeles County Museum of art.
