About Giran Sagawa

One of the emerging generation of potters in the Kasama region, Giran Sagawa focuses his work on slipware. A style with history in the UK, Sagawa is part of a contemporary revival movement for slipware pottery in Japan. In this work he applies a careful geometry, and at times graffiti like influences. The outcome are ceramics which are thought-out and satisfying to use. He also makes a popular series of mugs, stable in their construction, and well-fitting to the hand. These are often patterned with striped blocks of colour which accords with a another recent trend in Japanese ceramics. Sagawa calls these earth colours, reflecting the controlled appearance of nature within his work.
