Kyojiro Takagi

Mainly applying underglaze decorations (blue and white) on handmade porcelain base, and using slightly blue glaze to create a soft image.
I also make Shino ware and Karatsu ware that my father has been making. By making two types of pottery that are totally different, blue and white porcelain and Momoyama pottery (Mino ware made for the Japanese tea ceremony), I am trying to cultivate a new field in pottery.
