​ そして、処女作の粘菌プレート、ぬけらがシリーズ、標本と作品は変化していますが、今の作風までのストーリーがあります。


He creates pottery works using unique techniques and exhibits his works in Japan.


 I used to work as an archaeological excavator. The strata accumulated with rocks, soil, sand, ashes, and artifacts, and I was moved to read about various eras.

 Inspired by this experience, I mix mud, glaze, sand, and other materials with "naturalness," "physicality," and "creativity" like strata to create "layers," the world of slime mold, which I like, and small life forms. 


 In the Nukegara series, his representative thin works, he uses a unique technique to create layers of mud, glaze, sand, and other materials, repeatedly layering them to first create a fabric.


 As time passes, layer by layer, he builds up the layers and adjusts the dough (base) with mud and glaze, conscious of natural phenomena, as he molds the pieces.

 From there, we create while watching the condition of the dough and adding our hands to it.Although the shape of the piece is difficult to fire, it is fired at 1230 degrees Celsius, and depending on the piece, it is fired several times. Therefore, each piece is different from the next, and the process begins with the creation of the dough, as it is impossible to reproduce the same piece. Each piece is one-of-a-kind.


 Layers of mud, glaze, and sand are created, and the shape changes depending on the thickness of the layers, and further firing gives the piece an unexpected look. Depending on how you look at it, it may be tricky, but I always value unexpected discoveries and rich expressions, so I am fascinated by the irregularity of my work.


 The changes in expression caused by the mud, glaze, and sand are also greatly affected by exposure to light, so I hope that you will enjoy the changes in expression over the course of a day. The world of layers emerges when the light is shone through the piece. And in some places, traces of the struggle with the flame, such as areas where only the glaze endures, can be seen as if stardust from outer space has been scattered around. I hope you can see the strong and fragile expression (traces) of the pottery at the moment it is consumed by the flame.



And although his works have changed from his first work, Mucus Plate, to the Nukegara series, to the specimens, there is a story behind his current style.

 I would be happy if you could see my works including the story.
