Sakiyama Takayuki (b. 1958) creates irresistible vessels that are carved with rippling surface patterns that reinforce their surging, spiraling nature yielding objects that are sensuous, bold and seamless. Some works appear as if made from sand on the beach, the surface simply decorated by the current of the receding water. Others appear to undulate and twist in space as if in perpetual motion. His work has been selected for an exhibition posters at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
