Aaron Scythe (b. 1971, Auckland, New Zealand) has had a fascination for Japanese pottery since his early training at Carrington Polytech in 1988 and East Sydney Polytech in 1989. Whether his hands are shaping clay or holding a brush, Aaron’s work is a delightful fusion of quirky Japanese mastery and kiwi ingenuity.

Aaron travelled to Japan in 1995 to study under Koie Ryoji, an internationally-renowned innovative master of the Minoyaki style. Living in Japan since 1997, Aaron smartly relocated back to New Zealand soon after the Fukishima earthquake disaster with his young family. Scythe has had over 60 shows in his ever-blossoming international career, and we are delighted to host this one. (Oh, and grab a piece while you can, before he heads back to Japan. Seriously.)

 

Watch this space for our special ticket-only event for a tea-tasting (which includes one of Aaron’s unique, hand-made, signed tea cups!).

どうもありがとうございます Aaron – and welcome to The Vivian!
