Makoto Hatori is an internationally recognized Japanese contemporary
ceramic artist. His work with ceramics is innovative in that he
combines the centuries-old ceramic heritage of pottery used in Japan
and infuses his work with modern techniques. Japanese ceramic art is
based heavily in tradition, and the work of Makoto Hatori often seeks
to challenge those traditions by creating art through ceramics that are
meant to be thought-provoking works of art and not simply functional
pieces meant for practical purposes. (eHOW.co.uk)
