U-Turn Ushiro was first introduced to ceramics while he was working as a Firefighter. Ushiro was naturally drawn to the material because of it’s various processes, and freedom of expression. When he first started creating with clay it was during a time of extreme pressure and frustration. Constantly seeing traumatic situations he strived to find an outlet to let his emotions flow. Not only was creation exhilarating to him, but ceramics allowed him to pursue his interest in fire, learning how to harness its full potential. Prior to his practice he learned how to put out fires, but ceramics taught him how to grow and manipulate it, in order to create varying desired effects within his work. Before ceramics Ushiro’s primary form of expression was dance. Since a young age he learned several styles, and performed professionally in various different locations. Ushiro found a similar cadence within the ceramic wheel, but instead of shaking his body he let the energy flow through his fingertips. The wheel became a new dance for him. Emulating the human body within his tableware, he strives to make a closer relationship with the user and the vessel. After working with the material for a bit of time Ushiro came to realize how magical of a medium it was. Practicing contemporary magic, and tarot readings he found reality could be shaped by mind frame, just as how clay can be changed by touch. Leaving his routine life behind, Ushiro chose to pursue ceramics full time. Allowing this mystical medium form his life exactly like how he builds his own pieces.
