New works of ceramic figures ' KARASU '

"I have feared crows since childhood and yet been captivated by their strange beauty.
With the passing of years, I find myself increasingly attracted by the sharpness of their jet-black forms and the indomitable, determination they display in their lives.
Bravo to the much-despised crow!"

- Mieko Yuki
