Collection: Toshiko Takaezu

Hawaiian-born to Japanese immigrants, Toshiko Takaezu (b. 1922) started out working in a commercial clay studio. Ultimately her work developed beyond the mere craftsmanship of ceramics, turning it into an art form. She studied at the fabled Cranbrook Academy of Arts in Michigan, traveled in Japan to explore traditional pottery techniques, and ultimately gained recognition for pushing the boundaries of ceramic artistry with her forms and glazes. Her work is in the collection of major museums including the Smithsonian Institution, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Philadelphia Museum of Art. She continues to work in her Quakertown, New Jersey studio.
