Aico Tsumori's works are carefully made through the process of molding, underglaze painting, glazing, firing, overglaze painting, and overglaze firing.
"My work is based on my daughter's drawing, which I then sculpts into a three-dimensional work.”
At the end of 2019, she saw her daughter's drawing that she brought home from preschool and wanted to give shape to it, so she started making three-dimensional objects. Using people and animals as motifs, her colorful and fun creations, which seem to be a combination of drawings and three-dimensional objects, have a somewhat rustic flavor.
Inspired by my daughter's drawings, I add my own stories and project images that change as I shape the clay.
I want the viewer to take in the overall fluffy impression of the work and enjoy the mental landscape with their own sensibilities.
