“Healing” of the mind.
Things that are placed near you in your everyday living that cause you to smile, Pieces that take in the feelings of people while existing in the same space.
I want to create pieces that help people to feel a sense of peace.
Through my work in the preservation and restoration of old cultural heritage sites, I have cultivated the ability to express the sensibilities that Japanese people seek in the arts, as contemporary work.
My works are produced with Japanese cypress, mineral pigments and lacquer. Through the use of materials that are indigent to Japan, I think it is possible to rejuvenate the Japanese modeling aesthetics.
