Keiichi Tanaka is a ceramic artist based in Saitama, Japan. Through his works, Tanaka aspires to create an ambience that evokes a sense of "time accumulation" - objects that appear to have existed for a very long period. He makes his ceramic artworks using slab techniques paired with his original metallic glazes and hopes to esteem the attractions in the textures of ancient ceramics. Tanaka is fascinated with the beauty of functioning objects and shapes produced by the objects when in use. He strives to create artworks whose form hints at its context, implying a presence based on its inevitability.
