Biography

“Blue, sky and braze…Paying my best respect to uncounted pioneers, with a resolute determination.”

Takeshi Imaizumi (1978) majored in Political Science and Economics, but his true passion was making ceramics. While learning from traditional masterpieces from the Song Dynasty in China, Imaizumi’s work combines Tenmoku and Celadon. He experiments with new glaze formulations and firing techniques to create his unique styles.
