Filming with Joan Takayama-Ogawa for the Craft Video Dictionary
Hello, it’s Sophia here, the 2022 Getty Marrow Undergraduate Intern at Craft in America. Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to be on-set for the Craft Video Dictionary filming with ceramic artist Joan Takayama-Ogawa, who just so happens to be my ceramics professor at Otis College. Joan demonstrated some of the ceramic handbuilding and decorating techniques she uses in her beautiful work, and it was amazing seeing an in-depth demonstration of her process. It was my first time visiting Joan’s home and studio in Pasadena, so it was especially awesome to see her at work in her creative space.
