Niisato Akio is a contemporary Japanese porcelain potter from Toki, Japan. His work strives to explore the interaction between the ceramics and the light. The present lot is a typical example of his translucent and thinly walled ceramics with dense pierced dots, which the artist refers as 'Koki' (Pottery of light).

Niisato received his training diploma at the Tajimi City Ceramic and Design Center in 2001. Only 4 years after receiving the degree, his works had been featured at the World Ceramic Biennale in Korea, and the Premio Faenza in Italy. Since then, he had been exhibiting internationally and in major Japanese museums. Recently, Niisato’s work was displayed in the Ceramics of the Past and the Future exhibition at the Panasonic Shiodeme Museum of Art in Tokyo in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Japan Kōgei Association’s Ceramics Division.

Niisato’s works are included in the collection of Victoria and Albert Museum in U.K., Minneapolis Institute of Art in the U.S, and the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo.
