Machiko Ogawa's creations are like ancient memories wrought from clay and buried centuries ago, waiting to be discovered today. Like scenes long lost in the maze of the mind, the ceramic artist's work reappears as if emerging from a dream -- a dream formed of clay.
Last year (2001), for her primitively modern works in clay, Ogawa became only the fourth woman to be awarded the Japan Ceramic Society Prize (the others being Kyo Tsuji, Hakuko Ono and Takako Araki).
