Clay Journey from Shigaraki to North Carolina

Hitomi and Takuro Shibata learned pottery making as professional studio potters in Shigaraki, one of the oldest and largest pottery villages in Japan. Now based in Seagrove, North Carolina, the Shibatas will speak on their use of wild clays in North Carolina and wood firing methods. The Shibata's small pottery studio is named “Touya” which means “pottery house” in Japanese. Studio Touya focuses on making simple and functional pottery by using local wild clay and wood firing techniques.
