Keiko Matsui is a Japanese born, Central Coast based ceramic artist primarily working with porcelain. 
Matsui’s approach to the creation of both functional and non-functional objects is one of poetry and whimsy, yet always displaying the simplicity for which she is known. Stemming from her Japanese heritage and familiarity with the mending and restoring technique known as Kintsugi, her work explores the altering and reforming of fine porcelain forms through cutting and rejoining of sections. Along with creating objects of simple beauty, making and reinterpreting objects is her focus. She investigates form and proportion, the profile or outline of a vessel and the interconnectedness between the interior and exterior.
Matsui moved to Australia in 1999 and completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) degree in 2006 at the National Art School. This year her work featured as part of the Australian Ceramics Triennale in Hobart and has been included in two international exhibitions, 1000 Vases in Dubai and A Resolute Witness in Bangalore. She has won the Ceramics award at the Gosford Art Prize in 2012, 2014 and 2018 and regularly teaches Porcelain throwing at Hornsby TAFE.
