About Mishio Suzuki
Mishio Suzuki is a potter based near Kasama, a town known for its ceramic history north of Tokyo.
She was inspired initially by German and European product design. But by travelling in Europe came to appreciate more the pottery tradition in her own region of Kasama.
Carrying with her the diverse range of influences she acquired, Suzuki trained with the Kasama master potter Akio Nukaga, before establishing her own kiln in 2006. Her pieces balance a sense of nature, with a modern elegance.
