プロフィール

高校時代の同級生である与儀祥子(よぎ・しょうこ)と下地かおりが、1997年に浦添市にて開窯。旧外国人住宅にアトリエを構える、県内でも珍しい陶房のひとつ。東京での生活を経て、沖縄県外で培った要素や技術を柔軟に取り入れながら、現代の暮らしに溶け込む作品を生み出す。

沖縄にアイデンティティーを持つ二人の女性作家。伝統に新たな息吹を吹き込んで作られる器は、主張しすぎないシンプルで素朴な美しさが、日々の営みの中で光ります。オススメはシンプルで丸いフォルムが愛らしい一輪挿し。野花を摘んだら、部屋の彩りにそっと飾ってみて。

PROFILE

In 1997, Akane pottery was established in Urasoe city by high school classmates Shouko Yogi and Kaori Shimoji. They are running the studio at a post war military housing unit, which is quite unique. Through their life experience in Tokyo, they learned various elementary forms and technics for pottery outside Okinawa and are making use of them flexibly in their works that fit our modern life.

Female artists duo who have their roots in Okinawa. Their works are on the basis of Okinawan tradition in combination with new elements, which leads to their works’ not too assertive beauty that adds an accent in our daily life. We recommend their simple rounded bud vase. When you pick a flower, gently put it into the vase to color your room.
