Conversation with the Artist: Akira Satake – VIRTUAL
Born in Osaka, Japan, Akira Satake moved to the United States in 1981. As a professional musician, he ran Damfino Productions and recorded world music for his own label, Alula Records. He later moved to Swannanoa, NC in 2003 where he set up Akira Satake Ceramics and devoted himself to making pottery. Satake sees his work as a collaboration between himself and the natural materials he uses. His pottery is featured in the collections of the Mint Museum, the Phillips Collection, and the Asheville Art Museum.
