About Me

I was born and grew up in Tokyo, Japan, and came to the United States in 1998. I live in Oakland, California with my husband and two cats. I started learning ceramic art from a friend who is a ceramics teacher in private in 2000-2008 and I became a ceramist. I've continued to refine my skills and craft and have been a member of The Potters' Studio in Berkeley CA since 2014. I'm also the owner of Tomobi Floral Art, an event floral business.

My style 
I love handmade things because they feel special and warm. Creating a unique object is precious to me and I want to share that feeling with people.

My ceramic art concept is simple, modern functional designs that are fun for people to use.

My artwork is 100% handmade mostly using the throwing wheel and slab., does not have industrial or machine-made perfection. Small imperfections are quality of my handmade pieces and shape their beauty.
