Katsuyo Aoki is best known for her intricately formed and complex ceramic skulls. Working almost exclusively in white porcelain, Aoki evokes a feeling of spiritual tranquility and awe. Her labrynthine objects are hand-sculpted in bone-white porcelain whose bright simplicity underwrites the works' complex, bourgeoning details.

She has exhibited in numerous museums, including the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
