Chiho Tokita’s work explores the space between functional ceramics and sculpture, borrowing the vocabulary from one, to speak the language of the other. They are forms unmoored from function but reminiscent of use. Interested in the sculptural possibilities of utilitarian objects and the material possibilities of clay, her ceramic practice comes out of a curiosity about the language of form and material.
Chiho has exhibited her work in Canada and the United States. She was born in Japan, grew up in New York City, and now resides in Toronto. Prior to being a potter, she was a psychotherapist and worked for several years at a community mental health center.
