Ryusuke Asai (b. 1966) is the son of Shinpei Asai, who was the official photographer for the Beatles in Japan. Asai formed his own band and still likes to sing John Lennon's 'Imagine', but his grandfather and uncle were both potters and so he had contact with the field from an early age. He first worked with clay while he was a student at Dartington Hall School, a British public school situated in the county of Devon where the famous British potter, Bernard Leach once built a kiln and also worked as a teacher. After graduating from Waseda University, he attended the Department of Art at Goldsmith's College of London University, where he studied pottery while devoting himself to contemporary art. During a trip back to Japan in 1991 he studied for a period under Ryoji Koie, allowing him to learn from Koie's artistic spirit, which surpasses the boundaries of Japanese tradition and art crafts as he works with the clay. Later, after he returned permanently from England in 1994, he worked at the office of Shigeru Uchida, who was a leader of interior design at that time. Since then, he has continued to produce chic works, combining East and West, classic and contemporary. Possessing an elegance and subtle sensitivity, his teabowls in the classical Oribe and Kuroraku styles have captured the hearts of Japan's young tea aficionados.
