Hitoshi Morimoto

I am a potter from a place called Bizen in Okayama Prefecture. Bizen is part of an ancient pottery tradition in Japan. What I always try to keep in mind is what sort of creation I should be making in the present while still tracing the great marks of my predecessors. For me, the start of the creative process begins with my search for “genuine thing,” that is, creating something that gives depth to daily lives and joy to those who use it.
