Takeshi Sakamoto creates his unique and wonderful pieces in the midst of Osaka’s rapidly growing arts scene. His warm and remarkable personality shine through each and every one of his works, making them a delight not only to look at but to use and hold in your hands. Most notable to his collection is the unusual combination of glazes that come together to form somewhat impressionist style paintings, each one reflecting a different mood and landscape.
