Please enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime art piece.
"Tosaiga ceramic painting". The road began with an idea to paint of ceramics, but it was said that it was impracticle and reckless. However, after many challenges, it became widely known as an original art.
In Japanese culture, Kanreki, or the 60th birthday, means "the calendar returns", (you have completed one 60 year cycle and are beginning a new one.) Looking back, I recognize I have come this far in life, but before I realized it, I became 60.
The trajectory of my 30 year path in ceramic painting is basically the same to the trajectory of my life. And now, I have began to refresh myself, or originate anew, and have completed new works on the theme of "longing for brilliance".
"Free and shining world"
The calendar has returned, and it is the first eternal theme of my new life.
I hope you will feel the "brilliance" of my Tosaiga ceramic paintings that I created as a new frontier, at the turning point of my new life.
