Born in 1984 in Tajimi City in Gifu Prefecture, where is birth land of many famous potters in Japan. Since his junior high school time, he had decided to become a ceramicist. After graduating from the degree of Japanese Fine Arts from Nagoya University in 2008, he studied pottery under Yoshikawa Masamichi.
The forms of his creations are influenced by tea culture, folk arts and modern crafts. What makes his works so special is that he uses a distinctive technique called "kofuki" (i.e. dusting) to apply a thin layer of white soil to the surface in order to create a unique texture.
