Artist Statement:

Yusuke and Naomi Akai established their small ceramic studio from 2012 in Toronto.

Yusuke, when he was 13 years old, he made a green tea bowl.

It was Yusuke’s first one in his life, thereafter he has begun to make ceramics absorbedly.

Naomi’s background is house and kitchen design, she brings invaluable ideas to their ceramic work and adds flavor to it.

They aim to excel in simple, timeless, beautiful (yet fun!), easy-to-use forms. We believe in the beauty of functional design, and hope our tableware will add colour to your life.
