Kajiwara san grew up surrounded by pottery in Toho village and has taken up the challenge of how to re-invigorate traditional shapes and decoration. He experimented with different glazes and shapes until he settled on his signature white and brown glazes which he uses for practical tableware including the versatile Ohitsu container.

His glazes have a real depth of colour and texture which combined with simple shapes and decoration make his work really appealing. He is calm, slightly intense but fun and this comes through in his work which is precise and thoughtful but never loses that lightness of touch. His father still works at the kiln and his wife is a whirlwind of energy and as a team they have developed their kiln and are really fun to work with.
