This was a personal project with Ben Suga. Ben is a local artist who specializes in Karatsu-style tableware and sculpture. He’s studied and mastered his skill in Japan. He’s originally from Yankton, South Dakota but has since moved to the Catskill Mountains of Upstate, New York.
We met one afternoon in his ceramics studio - hung out, talked about life and the satisfaction of doing and pursuing what you love in life and had so much fun creating work along side one another. There’s so much I could say about Ben and I couldn’t be happier to have met him.
Here are the images…this is a mix of digital and film - enjoy!
