Hello. I am a Japanese ceramicist based in London.
I mainly make tableware and home decor objects. Most of my work is now thrown on the potter's wheel using surface treatment techniques that stem from Japanese and Korean traditions such as shinogi, mishima and kohiki. I also work in hand-building techniques.
The inspiration for my work comes from a wide range of archeological artefact, everyday products, forms in the nature as well as the materials and the processes in ceramics and other crafts. Through my work I am trying to explore the beauty and materiality while obtaining the functions of everyday objects.
From October '17 I am teaching pottery in the workshop space inside our studio, TOKOBO.
