Hodaka Hasebe's Profile
I was born and grew up in Tokyo, and have lived in Rochester, N.Y. since 1989 when I started potting. I worked as a market researcher and was involved with many products; foods, soft drinks, magazine, camera and so on.
I learned the importance of making good products.
Why pottery? A potter, it sounds good, doesn't it?
I dreamed of being one for a long time. I was once told not touch clay because it attracts people mysteriously, later days of Picasso, for instance. I have had no formal pottery training except a pottery club during my university days, when I became possessed by the clay.
I love making pottery, especially functional; I call it "Zakki (a bunch of pots)". My pots are designed to be simple, easy to handle, and go with any kind of foods for you to use everyday. Japanese use many different kinds of dishes, colors…
