Ceramic Flowers by Tomiyo Tajiri

Tomiyo grew up on Okino-Erabu-Shima, a small island located north of the Island of Okinawa. As a very young child she grew up watching the native flowers of Japan delicately bloom, while at the same time watching them dance with great strength in the typhoon forced winds. Tomiyo moved to the United States in 1995 and soon thereafter started losing her vision. Tomiyo was no longer able to recognize or differentiate colors in her visual field as Retinitis Pigmentosa set in, shrinking her peripheral vision with time, leaving her with only a pinhole of vision remaining. Tomiyo spent much of her career honoring the traditions of Japanese art and tradition hosting origami workshops in California and New York, and eventually selling her work at the Wichita Art Museum. In 2019, Tomiyo was awarded a $5,000 grant to create her first public work art, Maitreya, which was selected by Downtown Wichita to be designed and permanently installed in downtown Wichita, Kansas in Gallery Alley. Maitreya is composed of three shapes, a circle, rhombus, and a triangle filled with ceramic flowers that are native from her home land to address unity, peace, and harmony. Tomiyo recently exhibited an installation in Salina, Kansas at the Flower Nook with a 15’ ceramic flower screen. Currently Tomiyo’s work placed 2nd in the Sculpture category of the American Printing House Annual Insight Art Exhibit and her work is featured in their annual calendar.
