Risk & Discovery: The Ceramic Art of Hideaki Miyamura


Essays by Brother Thomas Bezanson and Jeanne V. Koles

Hideaki Miyamura is a Japanese-born American studio potter working in New Hampshire. Born in 1955 in Niigata, Japan, Miyamura traveled to the United States to study art history at Western Michigan University. After college, he returned to Japan to pursue his interest in ceramics as an apprentice with master potter Shurei Miura in Yamanashi. During that five-year period, he experimented with over 10,000 test pieces, using countless formulas to develop original glazes. Now well known throughout Japan and the United States for his experimental and illustrious glazes, Miyamura’s surfaces possess a stunning and unusual iridescent quality. Porcelains created by Mr. Miyamura are 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 & Albert Museum in London and he exhibits widely throughout the United States. This publication features photographs of current and past works by the artist and images from his studio and workshop.
