The majority of my works are Shino ware, but my aim is to be creative and original. To fulfill this aim, I have experimented and explored in my own way different modes of expression, unconventional production methods, and ways of thinking about ceramics. Fifty years have passed since I first started making ceramics, and I have consistently followed this path. In the future I will stick to this approach, but I also want to take up many challenges in fields of ceramics other than Shino ware.
