Kyoko Uchida tinggal dan bekerja di Yokkaichi, perfektur Mie, Jepang. Terinspirasi dari wadah- wadah periode Yayoi di Jepang prasejarah, dan juga dari Yordania kuno, ia menciptakan karya dengan mempergunakan teknik coiling lama. Proses coiling memerlukan waktu lebih lama namun memberikan perupanya kontrol penuh atas lempung Shigaraki lokal yang diperguna- kannya, selagi juga memperlihatkan integritas dari material keramik sendiri. Karakter ini juga memberikan kesan hangat dan siluet yang pri- mordial pada karya-karya-nya.

Kyoko Uchida lives and works in Yokkai- chi, Mie prefecture. Inspired by vessels from the Yayoi period of prehistoric Japan as well as ancient Jordan, she creates her work using the old method of coiling. The process of coiling requires more time but gives the artist full control over the local Shigaraki clay she works with, while drawing out the integrity of the material. It also gives her work a warm and pri- mordial silhouette.
