Akiko's Pottery

Akiko Graham

Hi, my name is Akiko; I'm from Hokkaido, Japan. I've been a potter in Seattle for twenty-three years.

My pottery is all handmade -- wheel thrown or slab built -- of stoneware clay. It is fired in electric kilns at about 2110°F.

Although I make things like fountains, flower pots, vases and candle holders, most of my pottery is tableware--for traditional and new menus, for international food--because I like to cook and eat as much as to make pottery.

I make pottery dishes for everyone, for everyday use and in restaurants. You can see my pottery in these restaurants:

And in these shops:

It is also featured in the Clay Art Web Guide, the October issue of Gourmet magazine in the article on Café Juanita (p. 228), Jungle City, and Remodelista.

My pottery is featured in many shows and exhibitions, including the Folklife Festival. It's also featured in Kanako's blog, and on Brian Parent's sailboat Vellela (Brian says, "They fit my new varnished teak pottery shelves on my boat perfectly.")

I accept orders of any size--small or large--and am happy to serve as your wedding registry.

Although all pottery is breakable, my pottery dishes are safe for food, dishwashers, and ovens. Some of my pottery has Japanese characters inscribed on it.

My studio is in South Seattle around "Top Hat" neighborhood, just north of Burien [view map]. You are welcome to visit me by appointment, or you can visit my booth in fairs around Seattle. My show room is at 10847 3rd Ave. S., Seattle, and is also open by appointment only.

Please call me with any questions you have. You may place an order by calling me at 206-763-3108, or e-mailing me at akiko@akikospottery.com.

I hope you enjoy my pottery!
