Mr. Kikuchi is making pottery in Tokorozawa City, Saitama Prefecture.Actually, the owner is also from Tokorozawa, so he was one of the writers who had always wanted to handle it.


Mr. Kikuchi has loved drawing pictures and making something out of paper since he was little. " I still sew with a squeak Basically I like being at home. However, I slowly entered my own time and felt that a lovely work like a picture book was born with abundant imagination.

"I'm just staying at home, so I'm grateful that you took me out from time to time." When I got the chance to meet him, he said so kindly, and this is also a person who warms my heart.


** I had the opportunity to come into contact with climbing kilns and ceramics at the Hanno-yaki workshop, and when I saw the state of the workshop, I heard that the reason for doing ceramics was that I felt that this space was very nice. It was the moment when I encountered ceramic art with a fresh sensibility. At Musashino Art University Junior College, you can select craft design and learn ceramic art.After working in a ceramic art class, he became independent about three years ago.Now I'm working on it every day at my home studio.


The gentle pattern is not hand-painted, but is expressed by a technique called "Japanese paper dyeing".Normally, Japanese paper dyeing involves coloring Japanese paper and transferring the color to the base material, but Mr. Kikuchi seems to be using kitchen paper as a result of various trials and errors.

The soil used is Kutani semi-porcelain soil. A soft and fluffy atmosphere. Also, it seems that the blue color is created by adjusting the pigment, not Kuresu. All colors are soothing with soft colors.
