It's really nice weather, isn't it?
My studio is very bright and too much sunshine~

Well, these pieces are new guinomi cups from IKIK.
You can use these to drink Sake.

Tea Smith

Tea Smith is a tea shop in Spitalfields London.

I drink several kinds of tea, including Matcha.
These are so delicious!

I really recommend you to visit there to drink Japanese tea and also their collections of tea pots and cups are special.

I bought Sobacha (made with buckwheat).

Sea Urchin

These are coloured sea urchin containers.

I like the yellow one~it's very fresh.

It takes ages to make each spike, but I love making them!

I am planning to make bigger-sized containers in the near future.

New Blog!

Hi there!

I've just started this blog for the record of my studio in Clerkenwell, London.

I will post images of my work and my studio.

These small cups are named 'Spiky Guinomi Cups'.
I don't think you can use them for drinking Sake, but you can put them on a table as a small sculpture.
