[Introduction from gallery]
Mr. Tai who used to be a company employee. At first, he was fascinated by ``Shino tea bowls,'' but as he studied pottery from various places, he met his master, Kiyomi Kawakami, and fell in love with the charm of Karatsu ware. Karatsu ware has various expressions depending on how it is baked. In order to convey the thoughts I put into my work, I always create an image of the work in my head. Also, I'm starting from looking for soil, hoping that my work will energize me with my feelings.
Company employee and Karatsu ware. At first glance, it's a different world, but it seems to be the same for Rui when it comes to interacting with people. Through my work, I work hard every day to connect with people who use it. The strength of the core that does not waver from his beliefs is very impressive.
