ABOUT THE MAKER

Gunji Pottery is by Tsunehisa and Keiko Gunji the two of the most renowned artists and ceramicists in our local Mashiko - a small craft and pottery town 100km north of Tokyo - who work together as a team as well as individually creating ceramic works for everyday and simple pleasure in their beautiful studio filled with aesthetic and surrounded with nature. 

We visit Gunji's studio and pick up all the pieces ourselves (sometimes they would drop them in) in person. We are thrilled to be introducing Keiko and Tsunehisa's work to the world through UGUISU.

*When you purchase multiple quantity shipping may be overcharged but we will refund the difference. If you would like an actual postage estimate please get in touch with us prior to your purchase.
