Shio Kusaka makes ceramic vessels, often featuring stripes, dots, squares, and grids as recurring motifs. Stretching or compressing the form, Kusaka’s subjective determination of when a work is complete ensures no two vessels are alike. Kusaka has exhibited both in the US and internationally, her most recent solo exhibitions including Blum & Poe, 2012 (Los Angeles) and greengrassi, 2011 (London). Kusaka received her BFA in Ceramics from University of Washington in 2001. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
