Mashiko Potters

Up and Coming - Introducing Five Mashiko Potters

An exhibition was held by Goldmark in Uppingham in the summer of 2017 featuring the work of 5 potters from the famous pottery town of Mashiko in Japan. Taketoshi Ito, Shikamaru Takeshita, Toshihiko Takeda, Natsu Nishiyama, and Yoshinori Hagiwara.

The exhibition offered a feast of differences, for eyes and hands alike. Yet it is the origins shared by each potter’s work that seem more vital than their many points of divergence. Each of these makers has been given a lump of earth; that each one has produced work so wonderfully their own says as much about clay’s infinite possibilities and the native imagination of Mashiko as it does their personal knowledge, skill, and vision.
