Started his career in Aichi prefecture, where he was born in 1968. Involved in pottery and metal crafts in Gifu prefecture for a period of time and then moved to Matsuyama City, Ehime prefecture.His favorite metal is copper.
"I'm now working on copper seriously. Bringing out the best in copper makes me feel most alive.",he says. Copperware has good thermal conductivity so an icy grass of any cold drink can be kept as it is for rather a long time. His cups are colorful and painted with urushi lacquer. As the lips of his cups are smooth to the touch, there is no coldness percular to metal cups.
