The beauty you feel in a moment of everyday life
Beautiful forms woven by nature
Grateful for nature's blessings and for being alive
I want to express as I feel with clay.
When I am in nature, I feel the whispers of all things in the forest through sound, color, and rhythm.
The moment I feel it, I feel that it is a miracle that I am alive here and now.
It is a miracle that we are alive here and now. This is the source of my various expressions.
