About The Artist

Yumiko Katsuya

Born in Japan, Yumiko became a Canadian resident in 1971.  She started pottery in 1983 when she joined the Hill Potters Guild in Richmond Hill, Ontario where many of her works have won Juror’s Choice and continue to be displayed in their permanent collection today.  Member of the Toronto Potters from 2005 to 2015.  Moved to Ottawa and joined the Ottawa Guild of Potters in 2016. Although her work covers a variety of styles, fans have described them all as having a peaceful quality.  This can be seen in the exquisite beauty of her signature crystalline pieces and the inviting cheerfulness of her sweet “Wildflower” collection.She has a passion for creating functional art, utilizing special techniques and glazes such as Fretwork, Neriage (swirled colored clay), and Crystalline glaze, to materialize her ideas.  Captivated by its ethereal quality, Yumiko has been focusing on further developing her use of crystalline glazes in recent years. She has exhibited in various institutions including the Japan Foundation, The Toronto Potters Biennial Juried Exhibition, Japan Juried Ceramic Exhibition and the Gardiner Museum. She has been awarded the Juror’s Choice Awards at the Hill Potters Guild Show in Richmond Hill, People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Potters Show and the Karen Latorre Award at the Toronto Potters Biennial Exhibition at the Gardiner Museum, Toronto.  Additionally, she was awarded the Honorary Advisor’s Award at Tokyo Ceramic Exhibition in Japan and the Fusion Design Award at the Ottawa Guild of Potters Juried Exhibition. Her work can be found at the Gardiner Museum Shop, the Dish Gallery in the Distillery District, Toronto, and The Ottawa Guild of Potters show in Ottawa.
