I'm Akiko, potter based in Switzerland. I make mostly small-batch tableware. They are made from stoneware on the potter's wheel. They give you a warm earthy feeling. I like the combination of functionality and aesthetics. I am very happy, if my tableware bring you a joy in your everday life.
I'm from Japan, where it's history of ceramics began 13'000 years ago. I started my career as a potter after I settled in Switzerland. Occasionally I visit one of the oldest pottery village in Japan and learn it's local pottery and philosophy. That's why my work ist not only from Switzerland, but also from Japan.
