ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ryuichi Haga's creation starts from making material sourcing trips and he digs clay and collects rocks and stones to make his very own pottery clay and glazes, to mountains and rivers from all around Mashiko - a pottery town in northern Kanto region in Japan 100km from Tokyo. Everything he handles to process the pottery materials - stones, ashes, etc are sourced locally - he calls his pottery "100% organic". Ryuichi's pieces are shaped on the wheel and wood-fired in the makigama kiln he hand built at the back of his studio. 

Not only his pieces are all uniquely handmade, but also even within each piece it has various textures and colours as you turn it around and look from different angles. Although the first impression may be slightly clunky as crudely made, Ryuichi's pottery is actually rather extraordinarily delicate as carefully examine it.

We are very excited to be introducing Ryuichi Haga's pottery from our local Mashiko to the world through Uguisu, we visit Ryuichi's studio and "hunt" for the gems - that is really what it feels like there actually!
