Akiko Graham

Originally from Hokkaido, Japan, Akiko has been a potter in Seattle since 1991. All of her pottery is handmade -- wheel thrown or slab built -- of stoneware clay. It is fired in electric kilns at about 2110°F.

Most of her pottery is tableware for traditional and new menus, and for international food--because she says, "I like to cook and eat as much as to make pottery."
