MATSUDA YURIKO (1943), Mount Fuji Incense Caddy
Matsuda Yuriko studied with highly respected Living National Treasures, Kondo Yazuo and Tomimoto Kenkichi at Kyoto City University of Fine Arts. Using highly sophisticated and tradition techniques, Matsuda transformed her work into sculptures which are uniquely her own. Her work is a play on the female form from the point of view of a woman; subversively challenges the male gaze.
Her intrepretation of everyday objects into sculptures are playful and her functional works are treasures to have.
