My aim is to create ceramic pieces that bring beauty and the essence of Japanese tradition to our modern lifestyle. The designs are kept simple with embellishments to stay close to the original true texture and form. The challenge is to integrate old traditional techniques into my work in a unique way. For example in some work I use Japanese Urushi lacquer. More recently I have been working with crackle but with slip techniques.
