Mr. Syo Fujita was born in 1978 in Wakayama City, Wakayama Prefecture. He graduated from Bizen Ceramics Centre in 1999 and studied under Ceramic artist Mr. Kazuya Hashimoto for 5 years. His works were exhibited in New York (2014), Paris (2017 and 2018), and Taipei (2017). He opened BIZEN gallery “Kai” in Imbe, Bizen City in 2019.

One can catch a glimpse of the artist’s creativity beyond the traditional Bizen style through the simple yet sophisticated forms.
