About Shinya Take

A professional potter in Kasama since 1980, Shinya Take has stability and quality in his work.  Someone who can be found among the tents at a pottery festival in the town, Take’s ceramics are pleasing wherever they are encountered.  Ash glazes from rice husks and hinoki cypress are a particular feature of his work, as is the sen zōgan style of inlay, that allows him to make electric twig like motifs on the surface of his pieces.  The potter’s forms are often delicate and balanced interpretations of Japanese tableware such as katakuchi sake pourers and kyūsu teapots.  All perfected over years of exploration.  A specialist in accessible beauty, Take is representative of the richly present craft in Kasama ceramics.
