製作茶碗大概是讓我最著迷的事情之一了。茶碗引人欣賞、深思,並以獨特的方式組合了功能性與雕刻元素。我希望在完成的作品中可以看到製作茶碗的過程:拉胚的線條、切削與雕刻在陶土上留下的痕跡。部分上釉的表面上,看得出火焰與熱度的印記。我不追求完美,對我來說那些不完美反而賦予作品生命。

For me a tea bowl is probably one of the most fascinating things to make. It is an object of appreciation and contemplation allowing a unique combination of functional and sculptural elements. I want the processes of the making of these bowls to be visible in the finished pieces, the throwing lines, the cutting and carving and the marking of the clay. The partially glazed surfaces show the effect of the heat, the fire and the flame. My aim is not perfection, on the contrary, to me it is the imperfections that make the pots come alive.
