永木卓 / Taku Eiki (Ritoglass)

Taku Eiki

“I don’t want my work to become the main character. My work is only completed when the customer uses it.

We were deeply moved by Mr. Nagaki's words.

“It doesn’t matter if there are only a few traces of handwork or handwork. There are many people who leave a lot of such traces, so I make them with the idea of ​​subtraction as much as possible. don't."

Mr. Nagaki used to make only glass objects. At a food event that she attended in Matsumoto, she was asked to make tableware, and the person who used it was very pleased. He says that he felt a great joy in experiencing "being used and connected with people and being happy". From there, his work shifted to pottery.

As his humble words suggest, the works are quiet, but when seen in lumps, Mr. Nagaki's works are very stylish and eloquent. The smoothness and leveling of the compote, the beautiful swelling of the dome, and the cuteness of small items are also excellent.

Taku Nagaki's glasses have such a good appearance that they seem to have lost their individuality, but their individuality is firmly embedded. Please pay attention from now on.
