BIOGRAPHY
Kai Tsujimura is a leading light of the generation of Japanese potters just now coming into its own. He studied initially under his father, the famed potter Shiro Tsujimura. He embarked on an
independent career in 2001, building his own home and tunnel kiln in the hills of historic Nara Prefecture. As the younger Tsujimura, he works in multiple genres like his father, including rough-hewn, natural-glazed Iga ware; white-slip kohiki; and painted, translucentglazed e-garatsu ware. He made his New York debut with an exhibition here at Ippodo Gallery.
