Tatsuya Tsutsui is a Japanese potter active in both Queensland and Japan. His exquisite work Lotus 2017 won the Highly Commended award at the 2017 Siliceous Competition.
Siliceous judge Greg Daly said of Tatsuya's work:
"Quietly understated work that commands a presence. This is a confidently thrown vase with a glaze that glows.There is an understated etched surface with a hint of tones in green. When you look closely you see traces of decoration as it disappears into the surface of the glaze."
Tatsuya has a number of excellent videos on ceramic techniques on his YouTube channel.
