Kasama in London
Japan can be mapped by its crafts, and Kasama is known as a place for ceramics. This has been the case for the past 250 years, with innovations and tribulations leading through history to the town’s modern identity as a location for individual ceramicists. Not far from Tokyo, Kasama has long both sold its wares to the capital, and imported creative talent.
A place with hundreds of potters at work, in 2020 the Kasama Potters project was formed as a showcase for 32 of them. Members of this group have successfully shown work in a series of pop-ups and exchanges in subsequent years, and return to London in Autumn 2023.
