Ikuko makes exquisite porcelain cups and other objects for a bizarre tea ceremony. The microscopic world, especially its intricate patterns have been the major inspiration for her work.
She uses slip-casting technique, and then decorations are applied later on. They are often with dots to give works a tactile texture. And in her more sculptural pieces spikes are frequently used to express fragility.
Ikuko graduated from Camberwell College and completed a MA Ceramic and Glass at The Royal College of Art.
