Narrative

For the past several decades, she has developed unique throwing and decorating techniques and complex glaze and firing formulas. Some of her most difficult work includes hand-throwing fine porcelain to an almost translucent thinness, while retaining strength and durability of the pieces. Her most beautiful hand decorations are with Celadon, Blue or Tenmoku glazes and intricate hand-carvings. Most pieces are carefully "High" fired in gas kilns to achieve the desired look and hardness.
Itsuko's style has been developed in the USA, but is based on both traditional and modern Japanese art forms and techniques.
