About the Maker

Katsufumi Baba is a Japanese potter based in Fukuoka. Fascinated by pottery since he was a child, Katsufumi studied law, and after graduating decided to pursue his interest in ceramics. In 1995 he traveled to France, studying with European potters and traveling around Europe for two years. Returning to Japan in 1997, he studied Japanese pottery at the Shigaraki Ceramic Research Institute in Shiga. He studied throwing techniques for a year and then worked for a local pottery studio for four years.

In 2003, Katsufumi established his own studio in Fukuoka. As an artist, he is interested in creating works of functional beauty, household items that last a lifetime and can be passed on to the next generation.
