My name is Fumika Mabuchi.
This time, we would like to introduce Ms. Ayako Hayashi, a ceramic artist based in Kamakura.
I met Ayako more than 10 years ago.
My husband, musician Tomason-san, came to see me perform on stage, and that's how we've become friends as a family.
By the way, your husband, Tomason, is also active in a unit called "Ogawa Kota & Tomason", which is a very local unit that makes songs about Kamakura and Enoden, so maybe some of you know him. maybe.
Ayako has an atelier "At Home Works" in Kamakura. At "At Home Works", which is a renovated old house along the Enoden line, in addition to regular production, solo exhibitions and monthly workshops are also held.
I haven't heard about it recently, but it's a bright space where the sun shines through the glass windows, and as the name suggests, it feels like home.
I love the view of the kiln through the glass window.
When I visited before, I remember having a good time sitting on the porch opposite the kiln and chatting with everyone.
Ayako's cupboards are all very warm, as if her own personality has been shaped as it is.
It's nice to have a fulfilling time just by changing the vessel.
Ayako's work can be touched and purchased not only at her atelier, but also at solo exhibitions held in various places, and events at department stores nationwide. .
Please check the website and SNS for information on future exhibitions.
Workshops are also held once a month at the atelier, so please join us and take a look.
