MESSAGE FROM TOMBOY "Things destroyed in the past, thing being destroyed today, things that may be destroyed in the future. I want to express these impermanence of human, objects, or feelings with my ceramic works. My desire is to put a smile on someone's face who see my work in the distant future." (translated from the original words by Yuuki)
