Catch of the Day
Meet the Fish
School of Fish

Since 1986, Raku Fish has been crafting charming hanging pottery fish ornaments. Each fish is uniquely created, starting as a small vase on the potter’s wheel before being transformed with hand-pinched mouths, eyes, and fins. After a bisque firing, these ornaments are glazed and undergo a traditional Japanese raku firing, resulting in one-of-a-kind pieces.

These signed pottery fish are not only unique but also hold a special place in the hearts of many who recognize their charm and craftsmanship. Explore our shop and discover the magic of Raku Fish (Schools) in select galleries across the US.
