About Maker

Back in my last year at university, I went to an antique fair by chance and a plate sold there caught my eyes. It had colorings in the cracking and its rim was chipped. Still it costed a fair bit. It looked fairly aged but somehow I felt drawn to it. When I looked at it, I felt like the plate itself conveyed its history of several hundred years and it was my turn to take care of it. Since then, I started to think about one hundred and two hundred years ahead upon creating my own pieces. A piece that could be still in use as antique tableware after one hundred years, and that continues to be used even after cracked and chipped. That’s the kind of tableware I aim to create.
