Traditional Japanese designs have evolved over numerous genelations, have endured
the criticism of many, and have been refined into ideals of genuine beauty.
I personally don't pursue design for the sake of history or uniqueness.
I strive to discover the global "freshness" of our own age, while fully exploting
the brilliance and genuine beauty of the past. I believe our epoch compels us to see
beyond beauty and convenience in objects to refect more fundamentally
on the enrichment of the human spirit.
Since my goal is to create designs which  enrich rhe spirit,I work from my heart.
