About Gourd and Horse

Studio Gourd (“Hyoutan Koubou” ひょうたん工房) is run by ceramicist and sculptor Akiyama Naoko.  Stoneware pots for orchids and indoor plants are delicately designed and handcrafted in her studio, located in Stroud at the western edge of the Cotswolds alongside Japanese orchid home collections are growing at her home.  Aki creates beautiful forms by hand throwing, modelling, casting and building, as well as inlaying.  Her pieces are finished with fine translucent glazes together with rich colours to produce this original collection.
