Many of my sculptures represent two forms pulling away from, or compressing against, each other. They act as metaphors for human relationships that are based on impending separation or forced attachment. Many people find the development of relationships to be a source of anxiety, and I attempt to express this interactive struggle through the physical movement of the clay.
Yuzuru Kobayashi's works and architectural expertise have had great impact at Sara Japanese Pottery. We've enjoyed numerous collaborations, including creative projects for Hanami Chakai(a traditional Japanese flower-viewing tea ceremony) as well as "The Tatami Project" in 2011. His design for this project involved elevating the traditional Japanese tatamimat onto a platform. This multi-use platform can be used to hold a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, or whatever function the space calls for. Currently, it is on display at our shop.
