Tomoko Sakai
Kagawa, Japan

Tomoko studied at Okayama Prefecture Bizen Togei Center, where she met her husband Michikazu in 1994.  Tomoko is attracted to the firing process of pottery making and whenever possible she uses materials which she can find around herself, and that’s why she originally went to study in Bizen. However, Bizen was not her style, and she moved on to studying with Shigeyoshi Morioka in Wakayama Prefecture.  She uses “Touka style” for most glazed works and “ana-gama” for non-glazed works.
