Hello. I am a Japanese ceramicist based in London.
I mainly make tableware and home decor objects. I work now mostly on the potter's wheel and apply surface decorating techniques that stem from Japanese and Korean traditions such as shinogi, mishima and kohiki or carve the clay surface using Japanese chisels for wood-printing.
The inspirations for my work come from a wide range of archeological artefact, everyday objects, the forms in the nature as well as materials and 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.
