Ichi Kitahara's organic, pliable aesthetic is reminiscent of, though fundamentally different from, that of his teacher, Hiroyuki Tokutomi. Ichi has a background in various art forms, from his classical training in Baroque style fresco to his months learning Native American silver work in South Dakota. During most of the 1990s, he made custom order jewelry and other objets d'art which were sold through galleries in Tokyo. But, it wasn't until 2004 that he discovered his true love - pipe making.
