About the Artist
The eldest son of the world-famous potter Shiro Tsujimura, he has been surrounded by earth and fire from his earliest years, living in close contact with freshly made pots and vessels. The works that spring from his hand possess organic forms like those of living things. The addition of Japanese oak ash to the kiln during the firing creates a fresh, blue/green glaze on the works.

1975 Born in Nara
1993 Began training under his father, a renowned potter, Shiro Tsujimura
2002 Built a kiln in Mima, Nara and started working as an independent potter

Thereafter exhibits in numerous galleries and department stores within Japan and throughout the world.
