Eri’s work is functional pottery which is mainly thrown on a wheel. She creates the pattern on each piece by hand-cutting paper, then laying it out so as to be unique and dynamic using the body of the piece as a canvas. After she applies slip on it the pattern is peeled off. The work is carefully cleaned again and again before firing. Her hope is always that each piece will become one of the joyful elements in someone’s life.
