About UKISHIMA SCULPTURE STUDIO
Ukishima Sculpture Studio was founded in 1991 by Hironori Katagiri and Kate Thomson in Iwate in the middle of Tohoku, which is rich in nature. Several studios are set on a vast 20,000㎡ site surrounded by rich greenery. We have the open working environment to create the sculptures from desktop-sized works to large monuments over 30 tons. It is also a studio where we can work on various materials such as not only stones but also metal and ceramic. We have also established the studio and company based in Edinburgh since 2006 to realize numerous public commissions as well as exhibitions all round world. Ukishima Sculpture Studio actively promotes collaboration with experts, artists, and designers of various genres, beyond the stereotype that "art should be in a museum", and We are aiming to suggest new forms of art in the strong relationship with society.
