Daisuke Kiyomizu
Mr. Daisuke Kiyomizu was born as the first son of the potter, Mr. Hisashi Kiyomizu who are the
grandson of the fifth-generation Rokube Kiyomizu. Although he was grown up from a prominent
pottery family, he didn’t much interested in pottery. When he was a student, he spent all
his time playing soccer, which is now his favorite pastime.

Since he was interested in design field such as interior and architecture, he went to an art
Despite of having a vague idea of becoming a potter, he didn’t decided to become a potter
yet. He was gradually drawn in by the fascination of pottery in the course of learning

“The most attractive point to become a potter is to create all by myself from scratch to
finish. In fact, most of manufacturing consists of division. For instance, architecture, a
building job is based on specialization, such as designing and construction part to meet client
’s request. Of course there are a variety ways to process, however he was fascinated by
creating from A to Z, from choosing raw materials(clay and glaze) to refine to compose to form
to finish, everything in between can be done by myself.”

He finally decided to be a potter with a thought of striving to create a perfect work in his,
artisan eyes, which is unable to manufacture or replicate.
“Until then, I wasn’t really involved with pottery field, I must say that it was a little
uncomfortable to confess my decision to my father.”

With his father’s advice to go professional school of pottery after graduation from
University, he studied again for 2 years. After that he was apprenticed to the potter whom he
was powerfully attracted by the master’s work. During his 3years apprentice days, he laid the
firm foundation, such as how to deal with others and mindset in being an artisan.

Starting as a young pottery artist was not easy. There are hardly jobs in the first several
years. Moreover he had struggled with finding what he really is aiming at. However, by having
job orders from his friends, acquaintances and those who are interested in his works at his
first exhibition, he has gradually gotten established himself as a potter. He opened his
gallery, called “Tokinoha”(a feather of Toki which is an internationally protected bird).
Now he creates a different types of potteries collaborating with his wife, an pottery artist
Mrs.Tomoe Kiyomizu.

His work has two different charactors.
One expresses his identity as an artist, Daisuke Kiyomizu. It expresses a subtleties of
depiction of enhanching beauty naturally as inspiration strikes without any touch-ups added.
He works on resarch for the profound beauty of nature over his lifetime.

orderly with a focus on user-friendliness. It is created as if a manufacturing product.
