Artist Profile

Uematsu was born in Kobe, Japan, in 1949. In 1972, he made
reliefs by learning the feel and the texture of the earth, and later
began to work on earthenware in Tokyo. In 1975, Uematsu
moved to Shigaraki, Shiga, and continued to create his own
works while being employed by the factory of a pottery
manufacturer. In 1982, Uematsu moved his residence and
workshop to Marubashira, Iga. There he made a kiln that
uses firewood together with kerosene and widened the
range of his work, including noyaki (field firing). In 1996
he was invited by the Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park to
produce work for display. Since the ’80s he has been showing
his works in many solo and joint exhibitions.
