Shigaraki-Yaki Ceramic Artist
Kyuubei Sagara hails from the Shigaraki region, an area famous for it’s ceramic ware. He comes from a family of ceramic artists, and started his own studio/work shop and charcoal fired ‘Kayano’ kiln.
He produces his own unique take on the traditional Shigaraki-yaki style. His philosophy is to make ceramic wares that are functional as much as beautiful. That makes for pieces that sit comfortably in the hand, and can be used on a daily basis.
