Japanese potter Inoue Shigeru began making pots while he was an office worker almost a decade ago because he dreamed about creating elegant pieces like the beautiful old Korean Kohiki (Buncheong) wares. But he also only wanted to use natural materials, which turned out to be exceedingly difficult.

Inoue-san overcame these problems and is now a successful full-time potter doing many shows in Japan and creating a truly original body of work. His pots have earthy beauty with powerful appeal and while no two pots are the same, each one is a perfect background for serving food.
