SUGANADA Shiinichiro

Suganaga Shinichiro-san and his wife Chieko-san are potters from the town of Motegi, right next door to the town of Mashiko.  Suganaga-san is a great fan of US country music, and hence his nickname of “The Country Potter”.  John met him online many years ago and has visited their studio and home a few times when in Japan.
