  • Q&A With This Artist

    A: My work is functional pottery which is mainly thrown on a wheel. The works are made from clay produced by the company in California. I create the pattern on each piece by hand-cutting paper, then laying it out so as to be unique and dynamic using the body of the piece as a canvas. After I applied slip on it the pattern is peeled off. The work is carefully cleaned again and again before firing.

    A: I am always seeking the infinite variety of combinations of clay and slip that will make the pattern look as beautiful as possible and pursuing to make two-dimensional patterns look three-dimensional through placement of the design on the organic curve.

    A: Enjoying my life, eating and sleeping well.
