"[T]he dusky spaces inside Chojiro's tea bowls definitely call to mind an infinite universe. […] To me, this is the spiritual universe imprinted on our DNA that can be traced back to the origins of the human race
It is a very sexual, primordial universe. By tracing it back to its origins, I have the feeling that we can become friends with the infinite universe.
I hope that instead of trying to understand it through words, you will be able to feel that universe."
Raku Kichizaemon XV
