Biography to Display: 

EDUCATION

B.A. Tama Art University, Tokyo, Japan

 

Reiko Miyagi is known for medium fired stoneware.  Some feature underglaze painting with sgraffito decoration while others emphasize more simple glazework design. Her ceramics retain an organic feel through shapes and colors, as well as her unique imagery.

Miyagi was raised in Japan and studied contemporary art at Tama Art University in Tokyo, where she earned a B.A. She then studied pottery making and worked as a studio potter in the pottery town of Mashiko. She relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1998, which exposed her to new materials, shapes and styles. 

Miyagi has shown her work nationally and overseas.  Her work has been selected by numerous shows, galleries and museums including the Smithsonian Craft Show, the American Craft Council Shows, Nordstrom and the Charlotte Mint Museum's permanent collection.
