Nao Matsunaga

Born in Japan, Nao Matsunaga trained at the University of Brighton before completing an MA in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art. He makes strange and elusive sculpture and works on paper often inspired by ceremonial objects and spaces. He works with dualities and contradictions that include the use of clay with wood, juxtapositions of matt surface and runs of glassy glaze, and a mix of organic and geometric elements. His practice speaks of enduring human concerns and personal and collective experience.

Matsunaga has exhibited widely, and completed a six-month ceramics residency at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2014, where he is included in the public collection. Other residencies include Cove Park, Scotland in 2010, Arizona State University Art Museum in 2013 and Cranbrook Academy of Art, Detroit in 2014. He was a finalist of the Jerwood Makers Open in 2012 and won the British Ceramics Biennial Award in 2013.
