Nanako Kaji

Go home


The appearance of facing the material of soil sincerely seems to be trying to embody the world of expression freely, in response to the natural appearance of human beings. However, on the stage of today's earth where there are many changes and contradictions, this one potter continues to challenge the work of looking inside himself more straightforwardly.

At one time, in the local soil, and at another time in the foreign climate that I visited, Kaji Nanako's attempts continued. We, who come from time to time, have a feeling that we will be able to see the world seen from this place through the scenery of her dialogue.
