Kaori Tatebayashi Ceramics

Kaori grew up in a family who traded in pottery in Kyoto, Japan a city renowned for its ceramics. Thus she was surrounded by the simple, elegant forms of Japanese tableware from a young age. Her work is greatly influenced by natural shapes and forms - mountain ridges, the silhouette of a plant. The simple ceramic forms are created by a special moulding technique which gives each piece a unique character.
