Satoshi Ishida

With an awareness of the aesthetic essence of Japanese tradition such as Japanese style and grace, I have sought to capture the beauty of objects that have serenity and have kept on creating my works.
I shall be happy if you could feel in my pieces, a lingering moment of beauty and tranquility.
In my production I am aware of the modern age, and aim at creating works that allow the viewer to feel new winds and changing trends.
