Having the first name which means "picture",
Kai has always loved drawing since her childhood.
She studied lacquer work at
Tokyo University of the Arts and
her graduation work was bought immediately by the university.
Now she is interested in pottery works, too.
Kai takes a lot of time to make her pottery works.
Putting on and off the clay, and
putting on and off the clay…
gradually her inner feelings take shape.
She believes the time and efforts she spent for the work
find the correct shape of her works.
Please see her charming works here.
As one of her great fans,
Wa-Ippin will always be with her and
look forward to seeing her new works!
