Techniques

The First Technique 

In a small atelier in urban area, I make ceramics by oxidized firing in an electric kiln. While I tried many techniques in the limited environment, I met the glaze, which was originally developed and used in Persia or Tang three-color wares. Since they are low-fired ceramics, they are not hard. To make beautiful and hard ceramics good for daily use, the base of my ceramics are something original. Ceramic bodies are fired in high temperature to make them hard. Then, they are fired in low temperature after the low firing glaze is applied. I hope dots, lines, and faces described on my ceramics would be melted with the glaze in the firing process creating special atmosphere.  

The Second Technique

Since 2000, I have developed a new technique using western paints as overglaze. In 2005, I could have a chance to learn techniques to draw fresco in France. I’d like to make the most of what I had learned in France to develop my special and unique ceramics colored with paints.
