With my work I try to represent the emotions in this world. The sadness, anger and the dark emotions that can’t be described by words. When I tried to shape those directly, it took the form of a person naturally. The pieces are not supposed to be practical tools but rather a medium to representing who I am. I craft those to grow closer to people’s hearts.
Hakusan Porcelain’s beginnings date as far back as 1779, during its founding in Hasumi, Nagasaki Prefecture. Their works have been well-received throughout Japan ever since, cultivating a reputation for elegant craftsmanship and high-quality finishes.
It was through legendary ceramist Masahiro Mori’s designs, however, that Hakusan Porcelain and Japanese modern tableware entered the world stage. Since 1958, the manufacturers have enjoyed international acclaim, their works admired at every corner of the world.
