Wakako Senda

As a potter, I value the blank space of a vessel.
To me, food is like a gift to my family and dear friends. It’s a small, hearty present from me and I think the dishes on which my food is served are a part of the treat. So they should not be too imposing to diminish the food but should be the ones to reflect the feeling of the cook.
I keep this in mind and try to give attention to the presence of my pieces so that both the vessels and food on them look beautiful. I hope to create a piece that would inspire to cook. I wish my pieces to bear a mood of being dignified but never too sharp, with softness hidden inside. I myself hope to be and live like that as a person.
