Traditional ceramics of Japan never ends. During one of my recent trip i've been at ODAIBA GAMA-Kiln . Lucky enough i met the young Eiichi Shibuya. Since i have passion for his grandfather Deishi, it was a surprise to see a positive turning point of Hagi. The Grandson of Shibuya Deishi show wonderful ceramics creativity & depth. One of my favorite artists, certainly the best among young people. You can remain clinging to a strong tradition, but potters are leaving this planet sometimes & it is therefore important always a continuation & it is fundamental to give importance & the right relevance to new generations. Eiichi has done an incredible job capturing the true essence of Hagi's past. With his right cynicism has embarked on an incredible path that will mark the fate of Hagi tradition for years to come. Born in 1979 in Hagi City  2018: Gained Grand prix of 5th ToubitenReceived the Distinguished Service for Culture Award from Yamaguchi Prefecture. Selected for the 65th Japan Ceramic Art Exhibition
