[...We named our pottery studio as Touya when we lived in Shigaraki, Japan. It literary means pottery house in Japanese which we really like....]
Studio Touya is a pottery studio located in the Westmoore area of Seagrove, NC specializing in handmade, wood fired pottery. Japanese potters from Shigaraki, Takuro & Hitomi Shibata set up their studio, and built a Japanese style Anagama wood kiln and a small wood kiln in Seagrove since 2008. Their focus is to make simple & functional pottery by using local wild clay and wood firing techniques.
