Ceramics by Morito Tatsuruhama

We are delighted to welcome new pieces by ceramic artist Morito Tatsuruhama. It is difficult to describe Morito Tatsuruhama’s works in a single word.  However, his work is especially appealing to those who love earthy, clay texture of ceramics.  His pieces are just the right heaviness, and its form and texture are perfect for any kind of dish that you may cook.  These finely made works, smooth on all surfaces with no roughness that a sponge and a dishcloth may get caught when washed, are especially popular because they are easy to handle.

The cherry blossoms by the meguro river in our neighborhood are supposedly in full bloom this weekend, but it is still a bit chilly for a long hour “hanami”, literally translated, flower viewing.  If you have time, please drop by our store on your way to hanami.
