"Molding and shaping clay to take a specific form is what brings joy to the potter. As a potter, I find joy when people find satisfaction using my tea ware to serve tea, or when other ceramic artists recognize my work. For these reasons, I always keep in mind my appreciation towards clay, the source of my happiness. Pottery kept on a shelf is lifeless and has yet to grow. Good pottery is defined as a person’s attachment grows with every use and the subtle beauty is increased with daily life and wear. Handles worn down with love or small cracks around the edges are what makes tea ware beautiful. These details embody the many shared conversations and laughter among friends and loved ones."
