Takefuji - Vase Tube Hakeme Green (Yanase Motohisa)
TAKEFUJI was established by Eriko Takefuji who now lives in Adelaide. She has nurtured a strong passion for Japanese pottery for over 20 years.
Born in Kyushu island in southern Japan, where over 20% of ceramic production regions in the country are located, she lived close to authentic ceramics throughout her childhood. One of her favourite toys was a miniature tea set made of Arita porcelain. Her parents would take her and her sister to the annual Arita Ceramics Festival, which has a history of over 100 years and attracts more than a million people from all over Japan. Year after year, the family always contentedly returned home from the festival fully loaded with sets of beautiful plates and cups.
