Issui Pottery Studio is based out of a quiet village in Okinawa. Its founder, Shinya Takahata, founded it in 2005; it’s nearing its 20th birthday! Mr. Takahata was inspired by his travels to countries like India and Thailand, and he decided to use pottery as a means of communicating with other people. He seeks not only to make pottery for daily life, but also to produce works that give people a sparkle when they see it, a quiet happiness when they engage with it day-to-day.
Every pattern made by Issui Pottery Studio is unique; each plate leverages a special combination of techniques and glazing work. This produces works that are almost like paintings. The colorful design offers a strong impression of the island of Okinawa; it’s an almost childlike innocence, providing warmth to people in the moment they use it.
