About Gourd and Horse

Studio Gourd (“Hyoutan Koubou” ひょうたん工房) is run by ceramicist and sculptor Akiyama Naoko.  Delicately designed stoneware pieces are handcrafted in her studio, located in Stroud at the western edge of the Cotswolds.  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.
