A devotee of fine details, Naoki Kato’s sculptures from his “Nature Work” series are created with incredibly thin lines and intricacies that only steady, practiced hands can achieve. His pieces are a mode of self-expression, and their unique, delicate designs offer a refreshing take on modern sculpturing techniques.

For excellence in his craft, Kato received the Sara Japanese Pottery Gallery Award at the Toh-ISM exhibition held at Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse.
