Ken Matsuzaki was born in 1950 in Tokyo and graduated from the Fine Arts Ceramic Department at Tamagawa University in 1972. That same year he began his five year apprenticeship with Tatsuzo Shimaoka, Mashiko Living National Treasure, who was in his turn taught by the great Japanese potter Shoji Hamada. Hamada was the first Mingei Living National Treasure, and was responsible for putting the small town of Mashiko on the world ceramics map. Ken Matsuzaki established his own kiln, Yu-Shin, or Playful Spirit in 1978 at Mashiko and has since exhibited his work throughout the world. Visiti: www.donkeymillartcenter.org
