About Yuichi Romita | ロミタ優一について
”Handmade, one by one. Slight variations in size, shape, colour, and surface are inherent to the process. I hope you will embrace these small differences as characteristics that give each piece individuality and character, making them all the more lovable.”
Yuichi Romita is a young Japanese-Italian potter traditionally trained in the Nanban Yakishime style of unglazed wood-fired pottery in Karatsu, Japan. During a period of four years, Yuichi studied as an apprentice under Nakazato Tarouemon, the 14th generation of an unbroken line of family potters dating back to the late 14th century.
Earlier this year, Yuichi moved to Skælskør in the south-western part of Zealand, where he has developed his own interpretation of Nanban Yakishime by combining his experiences from the apprenticeship at Karatsu with his current position as artist-in-residence at Guldagergaard.
One of Yuichi’s innovations at Guldagergaard is the gentle 曇り kumori (‘cloudy’) glaze, which, like his green asagiri glaze, is fired in an electric kiln. The Kumori glaze is characterized by its soft touch and warm white-beige colors with fine hairline cracks in the surface, making each individual cup unique in its expression.
