Bio:
Making pots is my art, I make them for people to use. I believe that my pots would attract those who appreciate beauty and function working in harmony giving the user a sense of joy. It is important to me to create communication, a "conversation" between form and surface. In my intimate relationship with each individual piece of work becoming an extension of how I respond to movement of the wheel and the clay. Born in Japan where I work as a fashion designer, moved to London (UK) in 1996, studied pottery achieving BTEC PDD (Professional Development Diploma) in Fine Art at South Thames College in the UK. I moved to Vancouver in July 2011, as from January 2012, my work is now showing at MOA (Museum of Anthropology) shop.
