NORIYUKI FURUTANI(b.1984-)


The youngest son of famed Shiragaki potter Michio Furutani (1946 - 2000), Noriyuki followed in his father’s footsteps at an early age. He is also the brother of potter Kazuya Furutani .

Recognised as a talented artist in his own right, Noriyuki is known for creating contemporary ‘oil spot’ 天目Tenmoku bowls that resemble miniature cosmoses. His works exhibit unmistakable elegance which possess a distinct iridescence. 

Noriyuki began research on Tenmoku wares while a student at Kyoto’s Saga Art College. After graduation, he apprenticed with Takashi Nakazato, a scion of one of Japan’s oldest pottery making families. Nakazato’s father is the late potter Muan Nakazato, also hailed as a national treasure of Japan.


Under Nakazato's tutelage, Noriyuki mastered the art of 南蛮 Nanban firing, the use of iron black glaze, and the skill of controlling Tenmoku creations in a wood kiln.

Noriyuki has produced distinct works at the Anderson Ranch Arts Centre in Colorado (2007), worked at the International Ceramic Research Center at Skaelskor Denmark (2008), and created pieces at the Hananoki Kiln in Toki City, Gifu prefecture (2009).
