Takeshi Imaizumi (b. 1978) majored in Political Science and Economics, but his true passion was making ceramics. Studying the traditional masterpieces of China's Song Dynasty, Imaizumi’s work combines Tenmoku with Celadon. His experimental glazes, formulations, and firing techniques produce bowls with deceptively three dimensional scenes and unique patterns.
