I always want to be a traveling potter.
I like to go somewhere.
Through creating Bizen ware, I like myself changing the way to make, reviewing the way Bizen ware should be, and changing my perspective to a new one.
It is also a “trip”, isn't it?
Feeling the gradual changes in the world every day, I am walking to lead my life so that I can leave my journey footprints of my own as the one living in the present age.
