Takanori Fujino was born in Oita (southern Japan) in 1974. After graduating from Kyushu Designers Gakuin in 1994, he was apprenticed to Nobuhiko Sueoka, who had been a pupil of Yoshimichi Fujimoto, a pioneer ceramic artist who specialized in glaze painting on white porcelain and was designated as a Living National Treasure in 1986. Fujino started his kiln in Komoro City, in the middle of Japan, in 2011 and currently specializes in glaze painting on white porcelain. He became a member of the Japan Kogei Association in 2005.
He has held solo exhibitions at major art galleries throughout Japan, including those held every year since 2012 at the Keio Department Store in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo, those in 2011 and 2012 at the Tokyu Department Store in the Shibuya area of Tokyo, and one in 2019 at the Seibu Department Store in the Ikebukuro area of Tokyo.
