The globally-renowned Tokoname-yaki artisan and certified Traditional Craftsman, Seiji Ito (伊藤 成二, b.1949) is the second generation potter of the Jinshu kiln. His distinctive, award-winning designs embrace traditional materials and techniques – such as Mogake, Yōhen and Chara – while the clean, minimalist forms will not look out of place even in the most contemporary homes.


Before he became a master Kyusu artisan, Jinshu specialised in teacups. These delightful bijou designs are perfect for serving the finest gyokuro, or even a sip of sake.
