little blue plates

5" dia. little blue plates. It's good size for snacking on little pieces of cake and fruit. Good size on PC desk with coffee.
Someone who served dessert on this plate to her roommate told me that the next day the roommate asked to borrow the plate and she served nice presentation of fruits. They shared the nice tea time again. That makes me happy.

Weekend breakfast

When I was in Japan, I only wanted to have Japanese food for breakfast. I never wanted to eat something sweet, bread or coffee. But here, I even enjoy pancake breakfast. Is this weather or humidity issue? I still hate cereals though.

I have only baked bagels before. Maybe I am too tired to wedging clay to knead bread dough.
I should read a book again " Science of the bread" I bought long time ago.

The end of summer

The last weekend of summer. I couldn't sleep at all because the new neighbours had a crazy party in their roof terrace until 5 in the morning. I miss the old tenants who enjoyed nice breakfast, reading books and had an elegant parties.
I went to the US open but the rally made me sleepy and I left the game.

I am making new series of vases.

in his little hands

I love picnic. Since my hometown Osaka has the Yodo river running through the city and I loved the Kamogawa river in Kyoto, I go to hudson river side more than central park.
I finally met little mr.c who is one year old. He already can drink his water very nicely from a baby cup I made. He was so adorable!

Yoshitomo Nara @Asia Society

I went to the open studio of Yoshimoto Nara+YNG(Yoshimoto Nara +Graf) at Park Armory.

We wonder "Who am I?" and try to figure it out or express ourselves.
Even people who are not artists, they explore to find something in their jobs and activities in everyday life.
It is very difficult, painful and scary to face yourself. I am very impressed and inspired by people who try to do it very hard and stoicly.
Nobody's fool you can watch Mr.Nara's discussion video.
Mr. Konishi's blog (in Japanese) You can read the process of projects by gm products(ex graf).
