Born in 1955 in Seto, Aichi Prefecture in Japan, Takeuchi graduated from Aichi Kiln Training School in 1979. He started his own studio in 1982. Before becoming a pottery artist, he worked for a Japanese car company. On one occasion he had a chance to play pottery with his friends. Ever since then he fell in love with pottery and embarked on a journey of discovery and hard-working for 40 years. His principle of pottery is “Respect and be in awe of nature, for life is part of it. You will be rewarded with great works if you always keep up to your standards.”

Different from the general household potteries, Mr. Takeuchi’s works are more artistic and have more academic value.

In particular, the flowerware of different shapes, in addition to the practical functions, can be regarded as a highly decorative art. Those intertwined and intricate shapes are completely shaped, engraved and colored by hands. They are results of artistic ideas that are transformed to reality by fine craftsmanship and become his unique and iconic pottery art language.

On color selection, he added red, teal and blue colors that have very low intensity in saturation on the base of original colors of the clay itself. This adds a tinge of glow and elegance to the inherently gray body.

In the modeling process, curved surfaces and sharp corners are interlaced to create a round and sharp multi-shaped surface which resembles 3D generated aliens from the future. The dynamic forms is a stark contrast to reality. Interwined and connected, every angle presents a different new form and endows a sense of power.

In addition to the various artworks, Mr. Takeuchi condensed the essence of his artistic concept into household items which are also unique in superb craftsmanship and fabulous decoration. Whether be it tableware or tea set, not only it has a strong tradition Japanese style but also has a sense of the futurism because of his attempt to break the traditions.

Don’t use glaze and firing high-temparature ceramic makes The iron-ions in the ion-riched clay that gives more flavor to food and beverage. In the long-term use will faded coarse edge,Exudes calm and simple gesture.

1955年出生于日本爱知县濑户市,1979年毕业于爱知县窑业训练学校,1982 年建立自己的工作室,独立创作。在成为陶艺家之前,他曾是日本汽车公司的一名职员,因偶然机会与朋友一起玩陶,便爱上了陶艺,从此四十年如一日地刻苦钻研。他做陶的哲学是“生活来源于自然,需好好对待,心存敬畏,保持对自己的要求便会有好的作品回馈于你”。
