Japanese potter Yasuharu ‘Taja’ Tajima has been making pots on Devon for over 35 years. He is a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, Crafts Council index and Craft Potters Association.
He makes a range of slab-built porcelain tableware as well as large coil built one-off pieces, using his own Seiji, Tenmoku and green glazes. All his pots are fired in a gas kiln in a reduction condition. Yasuharu’s hand-made ceramics are sculptural and have a warm, organic quality.
