Hosaigama 豊彩窯

Toyokazu Yoshida creates pottery while designing works to exhibit in the Nitten Art Exhibition and Japan Contemporary Arts and Crafts Exhibition. The main themes of his works are social satire and human lives, and he uses unique techniques such as assembling and adhesion. Says Yoshida: ‘I chew over ideas in my head, and aim to create pieces that respect my emotions’, and through creating works of art he sees tableware emerging.
