I apply iron glazes to many of my works.
I also use porcelain clay from the Kutani region for bodies, and create following my motto: simple, clear, sharp, and vital.
The works are formed on the wheel.
I create ceramic wear for the tea ceremony as well, using different porcelain clays from all over Japan.
