BIOGRAPHY
Ceramicist Yukiya Izumita began his career training under Gakuho Shimodake in Kokuji-Ware in 1992. Afterwards, in 1995, Izumita went on to open his own studio in Noda Village, Iwate Prefecture, on the border of the Northern Ceramic Production area of Aomori Prefecture. Tohoku, in Northeast Japan, is known for its very severe weather, because of this Izumita became inspired by the costal winds and the endurance found in seaside culture.
Izumita’s artistic career was met with extensive acclaim in Japan. Through exhibiting at SOFA New York in 2005, he was met with international acclaim.

In Japan, Izumita is the recipient of numerous accolades such as the Excellence Award at the 20th Biennial Japanese Ceramic Art Exhibition in 2009 and the Grand Prix at the Asahi Ceramic Exhibitions of 2000 and 2002.

From the age of twenty-six, studied the local kokuji-ware style of pottery under the kokuji-ware master Gakuho Shimodake. Kokuji-ware is produced in Kuji City, using local clay with tohakuyu (white glaze) and ameyu (caramel glaze) to produce works characterized by their simplicity. The majority of works are everyday items for use in the home and won acclaim from YANAGI Soetsu (1889-1961), who founded the mingei undo (folk crafts movement) in the 1920s.


Ever since has produced creative objets d'art as well as new forms of vase.
