ARTIST BIOGRAHY
Shiro Tsujimura
The creator of Japan’s most beautiful tea bowls. Originally a painter, he became enraptured by the aura of maternal benevolence he experienced when he came into contact with an anonymous O-IDO tea bowl as a young man and ever since, he has dedicated himself to the production of tea bowls at his studio in the mountains of Nara Prefecture.
The ceramics created by this gifted artist continue to delight collectors around the world and can be found in the collections of major museums in Europe and the U.S.

1947 Born in Gose, Nara
1965 Left for Tokyo to learn the technique of oil painting but became disillusioned with the process and abandoned the idea. He attracted pottery intensively, inspired by a classic ido tea bowl in Japan Folk-craft Museum and decided to take up pottery.
1966-68 Resided at Sansho-ji Temple in Nara
1969 Returned to father's farm and began making pottery
1967 Built own house in Mima, Nara City and workshop, teahouse, and seven kilns over the following seven years
1993 Built a kiln in West Devon, U.K., and made potteries

Thereafter exhibits in numerous museums, galleries and department stores within Japan and throughout the world.
