Miyako Terakura Biography

Miyako Terakura was born in the Japanese city of Gifu in 1994. She completed her master's degree in craftsmanship (ceramic art) from Tokyo University of the Arts in 2020. She combines clay moulding techniques and manual work to create sculptures inspired by babies and young children. It is precise because babies and young children represent innocence, and as Le Petit Prince says, 'all grown-ups were once children'. In this chaotic modern age, we can project our thoughts and have an object to place our wishes on. It is hoped that by producing pottery clay that can be transformed into a solid substance after being fired at high temperatures, it can be sublimated into a work of spiritual symbol for people to pray for luck and peace.
