Features of His Work

The study of painting at art school has influenced MORI's works. He especially focuses on traditional AKAE as well as Modern AKAE. AKAE is polychrome overglazed painting whose main tone is usually red. This style of overglaze painting was introduced to Japan directly from China. Other ceramics, such as NINSEI style pottery and Imari, Kakiemon, Nabeshima and Kutani porcelains, are well known for the same kind of decoration. MORI uses several wheels depending on the characteristic he wishes to get on his works. He maintains a well organized work place that expresses spirituality and his appreciation toward his creative works.
