Ayako Hayashi, a ceramic artist based in Kamakura

鎌倉を拠点に活動する陶芸家 林彩子

Hello.
This is Fumika Mabuchi.

This time we would like to introduce Ayako Hayashi, a ceramic artist based in Kamakura.

I met Ayako over 10 years ago.
My husband, Tomason, who is a musician, came to see me perform on stage, and we have become good friends as a family.
By the way, some of you may know my husband, Tomason, as he is also active in a very local unit called ``Ogawa Kota & Tomason'', which makes songs about Kamakura and Enoden. maybe.

Ayako has opened an atelier called "At Home Works" in Kamakura. "At Home Works" is a renovated old house along the Enoden Line.In addition to regular production, we also hold solo exhibitions and monthly workshops.
I haven't been there lately, but it's a bright space with sunlight coming in through the glass windows, and as the name suggests, it feels like home.
I love the view of the kiln beyond the glass window.
I have fond memories of the last time I visited, we sat on the verandah opposite the kiln and had a casual chat.

The dishes that Ayako makes are all very warm, as if they are a reflection of her own personality, and just by serving them in such a container, even ordinary sweets and rice can feel a little special.


And I'm a little more careful than usual when washing or putting things away in the cupboard.

It's nice to be able to make your usual time more fulfilling just by changing the container.

Ayako's works can be seen and purchased not only at her atelier, but also at solo exhibitions held in various places, and at events at department stores across the country, so be sure to stop by when one is held near you. .

Solo exhibition
