Shin Ito pottery combines traditional Japanese ceramics with modernity. The potter likes the charm of natural textures and materials. Traditional Japanese techniques are excellent for combining nature and artificial charm. After studying contemporary art at Tama Art University in Tokyo, and working as a web designer, Shin Ito decided to learn traditional ceramics in Kyoto in an artisan workshop.
Since then, he has settled where he lives, in Kobe.
Shin Ito uses a manual, non-electric potter's wheel to retain the earth's natural distortion.
