Katsuyo Aoki is a Japanese sculptor from Tokyo who uses porcelain to create her series of skull shaped works, entitled Predictive Dream. As she says: ‘The decorative styles, patterns and symbolic forms I allude to and incorporate in my works each contain a story based on historical backgrounds and ideas, myths, and allegories’.
