King Houndekpinkou


With genuine enthusiasm, King Houndekpinkou describes his early passion for video games and how it inspired a love of Japanese culture and creativity. “Then, in 2012, I went to Japan for the first time and was encouraged to try pottery. I was soul-searching at the time, questioning what I wanted to do with my life. I ended up taking a class… and here I am!” Franco-Beninese King highlights the spiritual similarities between Benin and Japan and he now works to bring potters together from both countries. “Ceramics has become the lens through which I see life, but it also leads me to discover new things that are outside of ceramics, like Native American culture and other countries and practices,” he explains.
