I’m not really one to get nostalgic about a particular trip or experience but my journey to Atsushi Ogata’s studio in Nara, Japan was certainly enlightening and one that changed many of my thoughts regarding pottery as a craft. It’s funny how the experiences shape you more than any kind of education and this certainly was the case here.
Today I wanted to highlight our feature page that’s now been updated with pictures from my trip to his studio and some more information about Atsushi and his working methods. He is another wood-firing potter and we are pleased to represent him in our shop. Such beautiful rustic works. See more on our feature page via the link below.
