Painting on a building by Fred Tomaselli.

Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced. Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.    Soren Kierkegaard

I took my first ceramic class at the La Jolla Art Center in San Diego, California in 1966. Since then, I’ve worked as a potter in both Japan and America. By creating unique art pieces, I’m trying to integrate what I consider to be the best qualities of both the Japanese and American pottery traditions. My studio is located in Kagawa-ken on Shikoku.
