Profile in English

Ceramic Artist TAKAYUKI IGUCHI

Thank you for watching my website

Thank you very much for seeing my website this time.

So far, I have worked on the work of glazes blended in the original pillar.

Mainly, from the raw materials produced in Chiba Prefecture

from Regional Shirahagi  and Karatsu  works such as solo exhibitions

and others I announced and got the evaluation of today.

Therefore, we will further refine our skills gained through our creative activities

and Maximize experience cultivated as a pottery artist against a declining area

and a chaotic contemporary society I became strongly hoping to make it alive.

Since the inauguration club where I will be representative has been inaugurated,

I have been announcing annually since every year I was able to have 20 years

as soon as possible.

These have also supported the creation societies since its inception

I am grateful that it is thanks to the members and the people who visit the venue.

I hope to further deepen the artistic activities aiming at pottery rooted in the area

from that thought.From now on, we can convey “fun of manufacturing”

and “charm of pottery”  to as many people as possible I hope to continue

and I will continue to burn my willingness to produce.

We appreciate your continued guidance and support from now on.
