Michikazu Sakai × Tomoko Sakai × AMAHARE
「Life With」



Michikazu Sakai and Tomoko Sakai make pottery in Kagawa prefecture.

They use mimosa tree that fell in a typhoon as a glaze,
have a snack in the garden near the kiln, where the sun is pleasantly warm, and
warm themselves with the heat of the kiln on some cold nights.

Making tableware in a wood-fired kiln is a very difficult job,
but the two artists' lifestyle, in which they work in harmony with nature,
seems to ask us what is the essential richness of life.

We will proudly hold an exhibition of these two wonderful artists at AMAHARE for the first time in two years.
Please spend a pleasant time with the works of Michikazu and Tomoko as the weather gets even colder.

With Nature


When you have a tableware with a floral pattern,
you can feel the nature in your hand.


I remember the morning I stayed in the main house at their kiln
and woke up to the smell of fresh morning dew.

Please enjoy a comfortable life with pottery and vases that can only be made by Michikazu and Tomoko, who are making things in an environment with nature around them.
