ZUKO, short for ZUGA KOSAKU is a handmade ceramics studio based in Sydney’s Bundeena. This seaside village is inside Royal National Park situated on Dharawal country.
Beginning life 16 years ago ZUKO takes its playful Japanese name from the traditional art & craft class taught throughout Japan’s elementary schools.
ZUKO’s bespoke pieces include large & small cups & mugs, plates & bowls, dishes, platters & vases. Each is individually handmade using Australian clay and unique Japanese glazes. No two items are ever identical.
