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.
