Shino Takeda is a ceramicist working in NYC and living in Brooklyn. Shino is a studio mate who creates hand-built pieces that always surprise and delight me. And she does this with such ease and grace I continue to be amazed. Check out her work at her site: http://shinotakeda.com/ and her blog Shino's World. Here are some pics I recently took one quiet Sunday afternoon at Togei Kyoshitsu, the studio where we both make pottery.
