My work is a contemporary art and also a craft. I think always, and I would like be able to offer their critical point. Recently, I am trying approach to contemporary art from ceramic art. I am making vessel for invisible or formless things. For example vessel of sounds, vessel of time. KAGAYAKI is vessel of lights or rays. I made KAGAYAKI body by translucent clay. This clay has been developed at Industrial Research Center of Shiga Prefecture in 2009. I baked fluorescent material on KAGAYAKI inner. I illuminated it with ultraviolet light lamp. Ultraviolet light is invisible light rays. I rebirth it to visible light rays in KAGAYAKI. and I illuminated some KAGAYAKI with blue LED.
