・Terracotta, Coloring, Inlaid crystal eyes

Purchase and Contact

With an eye on the natural sciences, I produce animal sculptures in a quest for creative forms that fully express the quintessential vitality of life.
Terracotta (earthenware) made from unglazed baked clay is a medium that displays your own finger touch and creative process directly on its surface and it gives a sense of vivacity to its work.
And for the eyes of my work, I have incorporated the gyokugan technique traditionally used in wooden Buddhist sculptures.
It is said that within one hundred years from now, half of the species on the earth may die out through destruction of the biosphere by humankind.
The process of leaving physical evidence behind of animals that may very well be lost forever in the future is something I cannot help but feel a strong obligation to as a sculptor.
