Nichibei Pottery Studio

 

Mikio Matsumoto worked as a commodities broker in Japan, becoming a potter after moving to California in 1985, and found clay to be a good medium for expressing his personal ideas. 
Cheryl Costantini has had a life-long interest in pottery, culture and traditional artistic values. In 1978 she traveled to Japan to study pottery. For the next 6 years she learned her craft by working in three Japanese potteries. Cheryl and Mikio formed Nichibei in 1985. Since then, the husband and wife team have shown their work at exhibitions in California, New York and Japan. Literally translated, Nichibei means “Japan and America.
