Kido Airaku (Enjoying pottery and clay) It has been decades since I was a little boy simply enjoying playing with clay and being charmed with fire. I was born at a pottery, grew up among artisans, and have been engaged single-mindedly in ceramics. I never lose my spirit of inquiry towards "craftsmanship", and I always dedicate all of my energy to the clay and kiln to make the best piece. I hope many people will be able to feel the warmth of the clay through my work and enjoy them as vessels and as a part of the family.
