‘Heart-rattling Lacquerware You can enjoy seing Change over Time '

While working in clothing sales, he became interested in ceramics after seeing a Bizen ware sake bottle. “My interest grew, and I entered the world of pottery in earnest. I want to move people with my work the way I was moved when first I saw Bizen pottery. I use silver leaf because unlike silver paint it is extremely expressive, and people can enjoy seeing it change over time.” Masaaki's main work is ceramic lacquerware, which is made by applying lacquer to pottery. It is characterized by unique colors and textures that cannot be fully expressed by pottery or lacquer alone. He says, “Ceramic lacquerware is very attractive because it has the characteristics of both pottery, which can be expressed through molding, and lacquerware which has a unique texture created by applying color and Polish. Silver Foil is the Applied to Add Life. "
