Kyusu from Mr. Gafu | G1Mr. Gafu Collection
With complete dedication to his craft, Ito Gafu has become an inspiration to the Tokoname artisan community.
This young potter creates his own clay using only local soil. Very few potters are so specific as it takes longer and entails more work to follow this ancestral practice.
Gafu insists on controlling every single step of his creation process despite the extra time that it requires.
He boldly incorporates traditional forms and styles as a base for his personal aesthetic and artistic expression.
