    “I believe these lines are not particular to Japan alone but have developed out of some universal consciousness. I believe that this style of ceramics not only crosses boundaries of space, it also reaches out into different time zones and can even communicate with future generations the same way we draw knowledge from ancient artifacts. To me, ceramics becomes a universal language which transcends space and time zones.”
