Many of my sculptures represent two forms pulling away from, or compressing against, each other. They act as metaphors for human relationships that are based on impending separation or forced attachment. Many people find the development of relationships to be a source of anxiety, and I attempt to express this interactive struggle through the physical movement of the clay.

After apprenticing with Takashi Nakazato, Takashi Yomiya established his own unique style. Now, he is one of Japan's most famous ceramicists.
His characteristic style, shape, and technique that was so unique has now become a staple in tableware.
As he continues to be the top pottery maker in Japan, he simply aims for "tableware that can make food taste even slightly more delicious" - perhaps an ideal that has no end nor an answer.
