TOYOBA Seiya

"I want to create ceramics that one doesnít grow tired of. Pieces that have their own character. With their own inner stillness, nothing forced. I donít mind if they look a little clumsy.

A good piece is one that you donít notice when its sitting next to you, but when itís gone you miss it.

Pieces like that canít be made intentionally. If one tries from the start to make something special, one usually doesnít end up with character but just something artifical.

Thereís nothing special about making ceramics. Thatís why itís so difficult."
