I pray. I create a work as means by intuition give by prayer by the Creator. Creation for me is a miracle of the Creator expressed through me. Pains of people, thirst are treated, and this miracle will lead it to happines.
I create it. I make a model of nature and create it to become natural form. So that space forms the earth, and it is the art that the earth creates a stone and jewels. I create to clarify nature and human relations. I create it. When I warm an old thing and find something that is new.

Water is origin of life. Water container can fill only water without drinking, and it used to formal at the tea ceremony. Because it roles by water to keep and to change atmosphere of the room at tea ceremony. As for the tea ceremony, a tea service set symbolizes a macrocosm by being affected by Zen. A water container for the tea ceremony symbolizes water in space and relations with a human being. As for Cochin, this line, vividness of a color is characteristics. High technology is demanded froma a line of the soil which I heaped up not to join with other colors. The colors are beautiful so that the glaze which I used lead for is used is possible. When vitrificaction completely passes, transparency increases and shines.

I created this work to express the feelings that seemed to be scenery of spring season in my heart. I decorated by the lines of the clay. I created it like a mosaic with colorful glaze. I think that it is important to have modest posture and feeling of thankfulness so that the beauty given by the Creator is expressed through me.
