About the artist Ken Mihara

Pristine forests, rugged ravines, gentle rivers and quiet mountains. Such are the landscapes that artist Ken Mihara witnessed as a child, growing up in the majestic scenery of Izumo in Western Japan. With natural surroundings of great beauty, steeped in the mysticism of ancient Shinto lore, Mihara’s solemn stoneware are borne and influenced from deeply idyllic environs. However, his works are far more than odes to nature. They are, above all, a window into the artist’s soul, and are monuments of self-expression that capture and convey the Ken Mihara of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. With acquisitions by over 40 leading institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museums, Mihara’s unglazed, multi-fired works have captivated a global audience, propelling the artist to become one of the premier artists within contemporary Japanese ceramics. Without question, it is Mihara who is emblematic of the Kanata aesthetic, and we are proud to have represented him for over 25 years. This exhibition marks the 15th exhibition held by Ken Mihara at A Lighthouse called Kanata (formerly Yufuku Gallery).
