Everything which you'll find in this store is hand-made by me.

In forming my work, I utilize a combination of throwing on the potter's wheel, handbuilding using slabs, and pinching and coil building (typically for some Chawan). My clay bodies and glazes often contain local materials from the surrounding countryside, such as granite, clay, sand, and wood ash. Pieces are typically bisque fired in a 32 year old gas kiln I designed and built, and then finish fired in a large 5 chamber noborigama (wood-fired hill-climbing-kiln) which I designed and built 30 years ago. Pieces with low temperature overglaze enamels and lusters are then given additional firings in a small commercial electric kiln.

The wood firing process is laborous and difficult. I have been wood firing my work since 1969 because the mark of the flame on the work is an important factor to me. The noborigama style kiln is a wonderful tool, allowing much flexibility for different effects in different chambers, but it takes a long time to learn to control one well. My firings typically take 2 full days to reach completion and then three days to cool before unloading.

I do not have employees or apprentices working to form, trim, glaze, or decorate my work. The only involvement that my single apprentice has in any of these pieces is that of assistance in the loading, firing, and unloading of my noborigama.

I hope that you'll find something which I make of interest to you.

Thank You. ありがとございます。

  • Other Method
Payment for your purchase can be made using a number of methods:

Payments can be made via PayPal if you have a PayPal account.

Payments may be made using a major credit card submitted through Paypal. This method does NOT require that you already have a Paypal account set up.

Payments may be made using American Express, Mastercard, or Visa through my own studio merchant account. We will need to speak directly on the telephone in order to utilize this option.

Payments from within the USA may be made by using a pre-printed personal check which has the name and address and phone number of the purchaser imprinted onto the check. The items will not be shipped until 3-5 days after the check has cleared in my studio bank account.

日本人 : Arrangements within Japan can likely be made for those living in Japan wishing to purchase directly in 円 (Yen) inside the country. Please contact me for specific details on this.
Shipping charges reflect only the direct costs of packing and postage; I do not add in a "handling fee" of any kind.

My primary domestic shipping method is FedEx and secondarily I utilize the United States Postal Service (USPS) Priority mail. Both of these methods will have tracking capabilities. Please indicate your preference for carrier, if you have one.

For international shipments I only utilize FedEx due to their extreme reliability, care in handling fragile packages, and their tracking capability.

All work is shipped fully insured for the value of the item plus the shipping costs.

On international shipments, any import duties and/or customs fees are the responsibility of the PURCHASER. Pieces typically are shipped classified as "Ceramic Art".
Refunds and Exchanges

I stand behind my work 100%, and want you to be completely happy with your purchase. If you are not happy with the work you receive for any reason, please contact me and I will have you ship it back to me and issue you a full refund.


All pieces are packed in as secure and safe a manner as is possible.

Upon receipt of the shipped package, please inspect it immediately for any possible damage. Report any shipping damage immediately to both the carrier and myself.

Should the really rare problem arise, since all of my wood fired work is really "one-of-a-kind", it will be difficult to exactly replace an item inadvertantly broken in shipping. I will attempt to find an item as close as possible to the original and see if that item would be acceptable to you. If it is not acceptable to you, you will NOT have to accept that piece as a replacement for the damaged item
