Takuro Furukawa

ceramic artist

His works named "Yuuri-Hakkinnsai" (釉裏白金彩) have the beauty of the deep and bright blue, as though we are looking into the depth of the ocean.
The silver striped pattern is made by putting platinum foils one by one.
Though Takuro's father was also a ceramic artist and his teacher, Takuro pursues his father’s quest in expressing the blue in his ceramics.
