A work by Ryutaro Yamada, who has many core fans at FOOD FOR THOUGHT. At first glance, his works, which are made in Fujino, Sagamihara City, Kanagawa Prefecture, look rough and classical, but they are actually very modern and elegant. With a background in design and a collector in the art world, he is an up-and-coming artist whose future is even more exciting.
We always work on various techniques such as kohiki, Mishima, codo glaze, black glaze, ash glaze, white mud, and earthenware. Inheriting and protecting the kiln and workshop of the late potter Ryo Aoki, he puts a lot of pressure into his work every day.
