Ryoji Koie
He lost two fingers at the first joint while working at a tile factory in his teens and says, 'Being faced with this handicap is what provided me with my underlying strength today,' as he continues to produce pots in huge numbers, 'like pollen'. He does not think in terms of 'contemporary' or 'traditional' pottery; among his works are the 'mask' or 'Return to the Soil' series, which are not fired, while he has also produced works calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons, expressing world peace and presenting a message to mankind. The primitive, primordial 'Koie style' is quite unique and has won him fans throughout the world.
