About

"I want to drink tea out of a cup that was shaped by me!" was my original idea to start touching clay. I still make cups, plates and bowls for myself and use them everyday.
However, my motivation is changing into, "I want my clay pieces to be used everyday!".

I obsessively make functional pieces, but I make some non-functional pieces once in a while (very rarely).

I sometimes make serious, traditional-looking pieces, but usually love creating whimsical ones with dents, colors, some knobs, etc.

Creation is my passion. I love it.
So, I never swear/curse to my pieces. Instead, I add lots of love.
If a cup flies out of wheel, I still don't swear.
I respect clay's will. I call it a gift from surprise…

It adds great personality to its surface. I just add my spice (modify) its self-adjustment. That's how it works.

If the cup fits in your hand and fingers, one of my goals is accomplished.
If you don't get bored touching, looking and using my piece(s), another goal is accomplished.

I hope you enjoy them to use in your everyday life!
Thanks for visiting my shop.
