Yasushi Kuno
Aichi, Japan

Born in the Aichi Prefecture, Yasushi Kuno experienced a rich history of ceramics at an early age.  As a Boy Scout, he had the opportunity to try “tebineri (hand-building)” and “rokuro (throw-wheels)” and his schooling also supported the learning of ceramics.  His love for cinema took him on a path as an assistant for a movie director in Tokyo after he graduated high school, but after three years, he returned to Aichi and joined a ceramics school to improve his health and realized the quietude fed him.  He embarked on a journey of study for the next few years at Seto, Raku & Kutani Seiyou before starting his own kiln.
