Upon graduating Kyoto's School of Traditional Arts and Crafts, Ruri Takeuchi apprenticed under the renown porcelain artist Chousa Yamamoto. Enchanted by traditional Kaga crafts and Kutani porcelain painting, she soon dedicated herself to learning Kutani techniques.

From lush leaves to a rabbit's twinkling eye, her designs encapsulate refinement and elegance in the littlest details. Trinket boxes, delicate figurines—no matter the piece, Takeuchi aims to condense a single universe within it. Her paintings transport you into the serene beauty of nature, towards teeming thickets and soft, spring breezes.
