Japanese potter Fumihiro Toda was born in Nagano Prefecture but later studied in Tokyo, choosing a much more usual career to that in which he later embarked on. After a short stint working in Telecommunications in Tokyo he went on to pursue ceramics as a career, first studying in Gifu.
After over 12 years of honing his craft Fumihiro Toda is well known in the pottery community and has held numerous exhibitions and has won many awards for his work. He now resides in Tokorozawa, a city located in Saitama Prefecture where he has built his own kiln and makes in a more rural location.
Saying that, his work is inspired by more modern but his glazes are fairly restraint but with rustic touches, which adds character to the pottery. Since Fumihiro is so highly regarded we are proud to represent a selection here in the shop.
