Takatori Yuko Ichirin Vases

Yuko san is the youngest daughter of the Takatori family. After studying industrial design in Tokyo, she went back to help continue their 350 year old family pottery business.

Inspired by both traditional Japanese aesthetics and Western art, she particularly enjoys using the traditional colours and glazes of Takatori ware but applying them in delicate layers with subtle contrasting textures. These small vases in a variety of shapes and colours showcase her talents.
