For more about Yukari and the Gallery, check out the following web link:
My work is porcelain, wheel-thrown, and one-of-a-kind. Each individual piece is hand-painted with slip, decorated with colors of underglaze, and high-fired. They are delicately crafted with details that are inspired by nature.
I am focused on themes expressing beauty and harmony, as well as playfulness. My motif includes images of wildlife, which are enhanced through my own interpretation-- based on visual and tactile impressions-- often along with a story, or personal experience. Every year I have something new to paint. It is my visual diary and has evolved over the years. By using playful and unique functional pots, I hope to enhance the dining experience, as well as create a pleasant atmosphere, where you share thoughts with friends and family. It is my endeavor to share positive & uplifting emotions through my work.
