new studio....

Since last week, I have started my new work in the same college..
It is just to keep on making new works
alongside the assistant in the college.

I have not touch any tools during summer,
so this week, I had to adapt myself in the new bench.
This is my new bench in the studio,
it is placed next to the enamelling room,
which is really handy for me!

The sunshine is sometimes strong and warm but it is already cold here.


summer in Japan

 Finally I came back home after the long journey.
It has past 1 year already since the last visit!

Green, green, green and green everywhere in Kumamoto.
Especially, I love the place, Aso!

Also, some old and new traditional archtecture which my favorite things!! 
They are really attractive, sexy!

also the huge blue sky...

some elements I loved....

always, old and new things exist together......


also nothing stays same....


long summer holiday - Irkutsk-Vladivostok, Russia

Saying good bye to the lake Baikal,
we were again heading for the East for another 3days!

I appreciate the people who built this rail, and
I appreciate how beautiful nature is.

the rainbow and rain welcomed us many times in Siberia.
The rain made the artificial colours very bright,
and the rainbow's colours comes from nature. just so beautiful...

We traveled from the far West and would go to far West!


long summer holiday - Irkutsk&the lake Baikal, Russia

I am a kind of architecture freak!
I love buildings and I love how they stand there with other environments,
such as nature, people and location!

So, in Irkutsk, I was just amazed how much the weather,
especially snow in Russia affects people's lives.
You can see those houses......
I do not think they do enough maintenance,
but it shows the evidence of severe snow!

When it is raining, it is really cool, even cold,
but when it is sunny, it is extremely hot and dry!

the buildings are leaning by the weak base or just sinking  in the ground?

I do not know why windows are build at this low level...
How does it look like inside the rooms...?

even the bus is sinking...?

It seems it is very common to decorate around window frames or doors!
Maybe it differs by architects, belifs or tribes?

those beers remind me that Japan is almost there!
We were heading to the East! 

Then, of course, I went to the lake Baikal.
It was just huge, I could not completely believe it was lake, but the ocean!

There was buildings in ruins...
It was not scary at all under the strong sunlight, but even beautiful...

Again, leaving for Vladivostok, it took another 3 days!
