Aki Moriuchi is best known as a Japanese born potter/ceramicist that began potting several years after moving to London from Japan.

She gained a significant reputation in the British ceramic world from when she began making her pots professionally in 1991 until her retirement from pottery in November 2006 when she had a solo exhibition with me at the Harlequin Gallery in Greenwich, S. E. London.

At the time she was living in St. Ives but moved back to London a while afterwards and then began a second "career" as a two dimensional artist.

On the first occasion that she submitted work to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition both were selected and hung. At around the same time she had an exhibition with me in Gallery 54 Mayfair, London where I showed her work on the walls and had a mixed selection of ceramics, including some of hers, elsewhere.

Here she is during the hanging.

I have just checked and during the exhibition that lasted a week I sold 14 of her paintings and other 2 dimensional work. Below are a few examples.

Fascinating pieces, and very good ones as well. Thanks Studio.
There is a long list of potters who did paintings as well. I wonder if any would have made a successful career out of painting?

I don't know exactly but these items were really just 2 dimensional versions of her "volcanic" pots, except between layers they were allowed to dry rather than fired/sand blasted and re-glazed.

Hope that makes sense?

Robin Welch told me several times that he really wanted to be a painter, as "you could make more money from paintings". He might have achieved it but he would have needed to have stopped making pots, which he wasn't inclined and/or couldn't afford to do.
