"A smile gives a huge power not only to the people who see the smile, but also to the person who generates the smile. A baby’s yawn, a cat’s paw, a penguin’s march – if those cute little things make you smile, my work will make you smile too. Funny cute Hairy Babes plant pots, ugly cute Shisaa wards, elegant cute namnam tableware and intriguing cute origami ceramics. I make ceramics for everyday life, ceramics for more smiles."
