Sculptor Momoko Takeshita Keane
Momoko Takeshita Keane was raised in the ancient capital of Kyoto, Japan, and grew up surrounded by the many traditional crafts of that city. One day, when she was young, she found a piece of old roof tile lying on the ground. For what reason she doesn't know, but it was fascinating to her. Since then she has been interested in clay as a material — its ability to be shaped and fired.
