About

stoneware, wheel-thrown and altered, underglaze, glaze David Kuraoka, well known for his work with Raku and primitive pit-firing techniques, contrasts formal elements against organic vitality in his ceramic works. They are often responses to his life in Hawai’i, as he translates his emotional interpretations of its volcanic landscape into smoky earth toned forms. Kuraoka remarks that pit-fired forms reflect something universal and fundamental to the order of nature. Originally from Lihue Kauai, David Kuraoka is an artist and a teacher. He has been actively involved with clay for five decades. During his professional career, he has developed different bodies of work. Among these are wheel-thrown and altered pit-fired forms; vessel-based ceramic and bronze sculpture; wheel-thrown porcelains; wall-mounted, handmade ceramic slabs; and large-scale extruded ceramic columns. In addition, he has created, fabricated and installed three major ceramic public artworks.
