BIZENWARE WORKSHOP WITH KAZUYA ISHIDA

Kazuya Ishida was born into a family of potters in Bizen Japan. He uses Noborigama and Anagama kilns to make contemporary ceramic forms. He trained with Jun lsezaki for four years, followed by time spent in the UK learning different styles of pottery, before he established his own studio in Bizen.
In using limited materials (specifically, natural clay and natural ash glazes) in line with the Bizen tradition, he explores the rhythms and patterns of nature. Visit kazuyaishida.com
