Reiko is a Japanese native who moved to US after working as a studio potter in Mashiko, a major Japanese pottery town. In her new environs she created her signature sgraffito decorative stoneware. She also studied metalsmithing, enameling and encaustic collage and developed her skills in jewelry and collage.
Her work is influenced by the Japanese appreciation of subtle beauty and the natural world. Regardless of the medium her work retains its organic feel, shapes and colors as well as her unique imagery. Her work has been shown at exhibits and shows such as the Smithsonian Craft, American Craft Council and the Charlotte Mint Museum.
