Ritsuko was born and raised in Japan. When she was a young girl, she discovered the beauty in traditional Japanese ceramics. She was fascinated by the simplicity, strength, and flexibility of clay. Ritsuko has been creating many objects from clay throughout the years of her work, and she feels that there are endless opportunities in ceramics.
Ritsuko started studying ceramics seriously in 1985 in Tokyo. Since then she has taken ceramic courses and kept learning her skills in London, Chicago, New Jersey, and San Francisco.
In 2002, she set up her own studio in San Francisco and started to share her ceramic skills in her community. In 2006, Ritsuko moved back to NJ and built a new studio. Currently she has been creating pottery for art sales, restaurants, and exhibitions and art competitions. Ritsuko also runs Rokkaku Ceramic Studio and teaches small classes in her studio and in local schools.
