Izuru Nishimura

In the field of Japanese traditional crafts my major work is a series titled Ryusamon (literally meaning crossing drifting sand), which has patterns representing the desert; in my regular work, I am not limited to sand designs, and I produce ceramics with natural themes such as wind or waves, aiming at a broad range of expression.
