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.

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.
