Craft Talk»A tableware is a kimono for cookery«Kyoto born artist Shinichiro Kanouya creates pottery of simple shapes and rusty colors.

Craft Talk »I try to make tablewares that are like family members«Pristine and sweet. The botanical paintings on Momoko Otani’s rather plainly formed potteries are the trademark of this artist. The rustical flowers and leaves add so much charm to them. Craft Talk Interview 02: Shinpei MawatariEarthy and refined. These two words may be conflicting more or less, but could be the right ones to describe Shinpei Mawatari’s works.
