Ikuko Iwamoto moved from Japan to London to do an undergraduate degree in ceramics at the Camberwell College of Arts. She completed an MA in ceramics and glass at the Royal College of Art subsequently. She is now a successful artist working from her studio in London.
Ikuko has been inspired by invisible things such as sounds, music and the microscopic world - cells, genes and organic forms. Every piece of her work is completely handmade. The general shape of the piece is usually created using a slip-casting technique with the moulds that she created by hand. And then she attached the decoration on the clay body one by one.
