Eiichi Morita

A fine artist by profession, Eiichi Morita's pottery has a playful feel to it. The character of each piece is infused with his warm personality and as a result has been well received in a number of countries. He channels his artistic sensibilities into creating work that is not only interesting, but practical. No more so is this point further exemplified than the fact that Morita uses his pieces at his own coffee shop in his gallery in Kasama.
