Thank you so much for stopping by my website!
Most of my work is made on the potter’s wheel, then fired in electric kiln at my home studio in Seattle, Washington. I love making simple, functional pieces; something for daily use. I often get inspiration from food and people when I work with clay, thinking how it will be used when the piece is finished.
As a Japanese who was born and raised in Japan, I grew up surrounded by beautiful pottery pieces without even noticing. My grandma was teaching the tea ceremony at home when I was a kid, she often served me tea in a Matcha bowl in her tea ceremony room that had beautiful Ikebana(Japanese flower arrangement) she made in its room. I loved those times I shared with her. She taught me to appreciate being Japanese and I feel lucky to have grown up surrounded by those arts.
I make mostly dinnerware such as plates, bowls, mugs, teapots and also flower vases. When I feel like working on hand-building instead of on the wheel, I often make some sort of animal creatures and turn those into planters. The world of clay is endless and I love to explore new techniques and glaze colors.
You can find my work on my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/Sachisunnycreation or some local shops in Seattle. I also often join events and craft shows, mostly in Seattle area at this point. You can find information under Events or on my Facebook page. I hope you will find your favorite pieces!!
