Takehito SHIINA   (1973-)
Japanese sculptor/artist. A fascination with transmutation and the natural world runs through the work of Shiina Takehito. His innovative projects include the Volcano Works called Kazan-yaki, which took him to active volcanoes in Japan, Italy, and Hawaii, USA to create clay sculpture burned into terra cotta by the heat of magma. He often engages with the community and new media in his experimental blends of the fantastical and the concrete. Born in 1973 in Hanamaki, Iwate, Japan.
