Kumiko Hashimoto
Craft  (NSW)

Kumiko Hashimoto was born in Tokyo in 1952 and graduated from the Musashino Art College in 1972, where she met her husband Kiyotaka. They taught ceramics together in Tokyo before coming to Australia. Since then, Kumiko has developed a sculptural style based on a personal language of decorative elements. Her focus is on hand building and surface finishes, the latter often patterns imprinted from native Australian plant and animal materials. Her recent work, a series of contemplative praying figures, marks a sophisticated departure from her more playful and colourful homewares.
