Isako Suzuki grew up in her father's ceramic studio in Odawara, Japan. Her father, Sansei Suzuki (鈴木三成), is a renowned ceramicist in Japan for his celadon Seiji work, Song style celadon pottery. Isako had been initially trained in wheel-throwing by her father before she started working independently.As well:
After some years of on and off relationship with pottery, she started working on a full-time basis creating her own style of pottery. Her main focus is colored clay construction or Neriage which she originally took interest in 2008.
Isako continues to seek aesthetic recommendations and critique on her Neriage work from Sansei Suzuki.
She is the primary potter for Hermann-Suzuki Pottery.
