I have always been concerned with the idea of handmade object.
Arts as elitist and inaccessible to the general public has always pushed me to make work that is both aesthetically and utilitarian.
All my pieces are carved by hand using “kuri nuki” technique.
Beginning with a solid mass of clay, I use a metal and/or wooden blade to shape the exterior surface. I hollow out the interior by hand with a carving tool.
