Minori Thorpe

 


Minori Thorpe was born in Setoda on Japan’s Inland Sea.  She worked as a registered nurse in Osaka - there she met a feisty American woman who was a flying-instructor and world-traveler.  This inspired Minori to come to see America, where she eventually became a nurse-anesthetist. 

 

In Japan, Minori was exposed to beautiful ceramics, but never had the opportunity to try making them herself.

 

In the States, her development as a potter has been particularly helped

by Victor Spinski and Brenda Kingham-Hurm.

 

Minori’s interest in crystalline glazes and traditional stoneware

is evident in her ceramics.
