Originally from Tokyo, Akiko Muromura started taking pottery classes as a hobby. After two years of practice, she had an opportunity to come to Canada, where she landed in “the land of living skies.” Eventually, she became a resident of Regina. About 10 years ago, she re-started taking some pottery classes after several years of absence. Clay became her passion.
Akiko is enjoying producing functional wares and some decorative objects. She uses porcelain and stoneware fired to cone 10 in a reduction gas kiln. She also likes using the wood fire kiln, which shows the collaboration between ash and fire.
