About Maker

My motto in making pottery is “Better being rough and ready than slow and elaborate” which are words by Sun Tzu from “The Art of War.” It means that work that is a bit rough but takes less time to complete is better than elaborate perfection that takes time. I think the pottery and antiques that I adore bear the beauty of “rough and ready.” The Joseon ceramics, old Karatsu and early Imari pottery have the beauty of “rough and ready” in their shapes and paintings. Exquisite and elaborate vessels are beautiful, but I find them suffocating and am not interested in them.
