Kaori Tatebayashi grew up in a small village called Arita in Japan. Arita is renowned as the birth place of Imari porcelain. As a child, Tatebayashi’s favorite playground was the pottery factory where she sat mesmerized, watching the craftsmen throwing.
“For me, making tableware is like breathing - a simple, natural thing. I want my work to embody nature and create an experience of it in some small, intimate way. I hope the quietness and simplicity of my tableware allows it to fit into how different people live and inspire pleasurable use.” – Kaori Tatebayashi
