Artist Bio

Sumiko Takada has been working with clay for over 20 years. She has studied in Japan with Yasunori Nishio and Jun Terada both in Komaki, Aichi and in the United States at Worthington Community Center and Columbus College of Art & Design.

Sumiko creates her functional work with stoneware that is fired to cone 5 in oxidation. Her inlaid pieces are painstakingly crafted by hand: first carving the designs on the ware, then filling them with colored slip, and finally cleaning up the excess slips. She also uses slip decorations and various glazes of her own formula in her work.

She has been participating art fairs/festival through out the US including Ann Arbor Street Art Fair - The Original, Des Moines Arts Festival, Columbus Arts Festival, Uptown Arts Fair (Minneapolis), Three Rivers Arts Festival (Pittsburgh), Summerfair Cincinnati.
