Hiroshi Suzuki

Born: 1961

Born in Japan, Hiroshi Suzuki initially trained in Industrial design in Tokyo before moving to London in 1994 to study metalwork at Camberwell College and then at the Royal College of Art. After establishing a studio in England in 1998, he now lives and works in Japan and is a Professor at the Musashino Art University in Tokyo. Hiroshi Suzuki has had two solo exhibitions at The Scottish Gallery. His hammer raised vessels are iconic and his work is recognised internationally for its outstanding quality. In 2010, he was honoured with a retrospective exhibition at Goldsmiths’ Hall, London. “Intuition and feeling are core to my creative process, allowing me to maintain sensitivity with the material. The thematic influences in my work explore the subtleties within fluidity and sensuality, a very personal expression applied with an all-encompassing hand.”
