What is important for daily life tools is ease of use and beauty. We inherit the tradition of “use and beauty” that Tamba-yaki is proud of, and express a new Tamba-yaki that coexists with modern life.
It is said that the movement of the moon is linked to the ebb and flow of the tides, affecting everything from the birth of new life to the internal cycles of animals. I chose the moon as a symbol of the source of life. Everyone has a memory of a night when they looked up at the moon. I hope to express the nostalgia that we all have. Tomoharu Okamura HP TOP
A landscape in which the colors of things change in various ways with the passage of time. I would like to express the air and light of that moment with my impression. Takuma Kaneko HP http://www.takumakaneko.com/
I mainly paint still life with fruits and flowers. What I put in a picture is the beauty of color with power that shines vividly with harmony and balance. Each motif has a solid presence. I aim to create an atmospheric world of color by depicting the light that seems to pour into the picture plane and the soft light that cloaks it like a veil. I want to draw pictures that draw you in and make you want to keep looking at them. Izumi Kawamoto blog http://decorativeartist.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/
I continue to paint water as a motif. This is because I am fascinated by the mystery and power of life-giving water. In my paintings, both the rich curves and the legal straight lines created by nature are equally encompassed in one organic world. Flowers, goldfish, and seaweed are also depicted as happy symbols around water, and I want to infuse my work with the aesthetic and fundamental sense of color that they reflect in the water.

He paints landscapes that depict a quiet sense of rhythm in a classical style, and prestigious still life paintings that depict his unique world view. Sota Koike HP https://www.koikesota.com/
I always have the same theme at the bottom of my heart. It is to express what people cannot see and cannot express, such as space, air, time, and distance. I always try to depict the colorless transparency that exists between the eye and the object, rather than using objects as a medium for unrealistic expression.
It depicts the breath of life, interwoven with small animals and plants living in the wind and the big nature. I hope it will spread your imagination as fresh and clean as the latter. Kazuyuki Sudo HP http://sutooo.net/
In Japanese painting, it is said that “line” is important. However, there are no “contour lines” because all visible things are three-dimensional. Lines” are created when we recognize the shape of objects, but I think they are very ambiguous things that can be greatly changed by different viewing angles and situations. I think that the reason why I draw pictures is to leave a moment of something that is always changing through the filter of myself. Yuka Taguchi HP https://www.yukataguchi.com/
My aim is to create paintings that incorporate a contemporary perspective by layering images of natural phenomena such as the sky and water over themes that have been depicted since ancient times, such as the moon, flowers, and living creatures. I would like to create works that give a sense of abstraction within the figurative, and through sensory interpretation, give a sense of Japanese aesthetics. Junya Tsubota HP http://www.junyarts.net/
No matter how happy or sad we are, no matter what the weather is like, the four seasons always come and go, and the greenery of the trees and plants remind us of the seasons with their gentle flowers. I am always grateful for the unchanging nature of the seasons, which gives me strength and kindness.
When I turn the calendar around, there is always a new landscape there. I am glad to go through several seasons, as if something I had forgotten comes back to my heart. There is light, shadow, and color in the wind that brushes my cheek. And I want to capture something like a fragrance in the landscape. I want to draw the heart of nature.
