“In my life I see no difference between making pots, cooking and growing vegetables. They are all so related. However, there is a need for me to work in clay. It is so gratifying and I get so much joy from it, and it gives me many answers in my life.”

Toshiko Takaezu (June 17, 1922 – March 9, 2011)

Toshiko Takaezu was Born in 1922 in Pepeekeo, Hawaii. Her closed vessels and asymmetrical forms blend Eastern and Western traditions, recalling the landscape of her native Hawaii; the scale and drama of her pots demand an intimate participation from the viewer. -American Craft Council
