Hitomi Shibata graduated with undergraduate and graduate degrees in fine art from Okayama University, with a ceramics concentration. She and her husband founded Studio Touya in Shigaraki, Japan. A Rotary International scholarship brought Hitomi to the U.S. for the first time, and she and Takuro first visited the Seagrove area during this trip. The couple returned to Seagrove in 2005 and have helped to build a home for their two boys and two kilns for their work. The relocated Studio Touya off of Busbee Road opened in 2007. Hitomi has been an artist in residence at Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park in Japan; Cub Creek Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Appomattox, Virginia; and the NC Pottery Center in Seagrove. In 2017, she was selected as a member of the International Academy of Ceramics in Geneva, Switzerland.
