Every year, as I sketch camellias when they are in bloom, I feel many things. There was a day when I felt the flow of time strongly while admiring the camellias and thought, "How could I express this flow of time in my artwork?" This is how this piece was created. I expressed the change from day to night with the white and black leaves, and I wanted those who saw this piece to feel the vitality and liveliness of the blooming camellias.

Producing pieces based on what I am charmed and moved by in nature. Applying feldspathic glaze and adding iron decorations, red painting, color painting and gold decorations is my specific style.
