Features of Her Work

Over the years, Japanese woman have entrusted their thoughts and feelings of pleasure or sadness into figures. MOCHIMARU's experiences in South America have influenced her creation of black pottery as well as her ceramic figures. Her black pottery is hand built, then polished before firing. Nowadays, polished black pottery, a popular technique in early times, has been discovered in South America.
