The eldest son of the world-famous potter Shiro Tsujimura, he has been surrounded by earth and fire from his earliest years, living in close contact with freshly made pots and vessels. The works that spring from his hand possess organic forms like those of living things. The addition of Japanese oak ash to the kiln during the firing creates a fresh, blue/green glaze on the works.
