Miyu Asakawa was born in Fukuoka, Japan and moved to New York in 1998. She has been working in ceramics for the last seven years. Most of the pieces in this exhibit are made in the Raku method, which is a particular method of glazing and firing clay. In Raku, the glaze of every piece comes out completely different, even if it started out identical on two separate pieces. She has previously had exhibitions in NY at Art on A in Manhattan and at Roux Roux in Brooklyn.
