Hideaki Miyamura

Represented by Pucker Gallery since 2002

BORN: 1955 in Niigata, Japan
RESIDES: West Newbury, Massachusetts 

Hideaki Miyamura was born in 1955 in Niigata, Japan, and traveled to the United States to study art history at Western Michigan University. After college, he returned to Japan in 1987 to pursue his interest in ceramics as an apprentice with master potter Shurei Miura in Yamanashi. Stemming from his interest in rare ancient Chinese tea bowl glazes, Miyamura seeks to create glazes that have a three-dimensional quality and convey purity and peacefulness. His vessels are pristine, disarmingly simple, contemplative objects whose finishes reflect the panoply of the natural world — geologic phenomena, star-filled nights, undulating ocean waves, and fiery sunsets. His work is included in numerous public collections, including the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
