Kazuya Furutani (b. 1976) is the son of Michio Furutani (1946-2000), one of the most respected Shigaraki potters, widely regarded as one of the finest proponents of the anagama, or wood-burning tunnel kiln. Kazuya has taken over where his father left off and is now enjoying huge success in Japan, with his yearly Tokyo exhibitions greatly anticipated and always sold out.
