Ai Yamamoto

I am inspired by traditional Japanese patterns which portray unique social and cultural characteristics.

I am fascinated by finding points of similarity between Japanese social habits and the designs in Japanese crafts. Japan is a small island nation, and people follow strict social manners in order to avoid interfering with others. I find that this kind of behavior and mindset relates to the well-defined and repetitive designs in Japanese crafts. They are often condensed and detail oriented.

I draw slip decoration on my pottery. I hope it creates a cheerful moment for users.
