Conde Nast Traveler features Akira Satake Ceramics and Yuzu Patisserie at Cotton Mill Studios - "The 10 Best Things to Do in Asheville, North Carolina"

From Conde Nast: 

SHOP: River Arts District

"You could spend hours wandering the working studios in Asheville’s mile-long River Arts District. More than 200 artists work here in every medium imaginable; some have retail shops and galleries, while others host impromptu demos. Two spaces you won’t want to miss are Japanese ceramicist Akira Satake’s Gallery Mugen in The Cotton Mill Studios and Heather Knight’s Element Clay Studio. Satake is a potter and banjo player; if you’re lucky, he’ll be sculpting and/or picking away when you drop in. His wife, Cynthia Pierce, runs the in-house Yuzu Patisserie—a delightful pit stop for green tea and pastries. Knight, meanwhile, specializes in organic hand-textured porcelain: platters, bowls, wall tiles, you name it. Her style is minimalist and modern, with prices starting as low as $15 for a petite crackle-glazed dish."
