Kasama ware

It is a form and beauty that the user of the vessel (which is made freely in nature) can use with their heart and mind to create more than just a vessel. Each of us needs high ideals to achieve this. I would like to discover the potential of human beings as they are in nature and create vessels (works of art) without being concerned with craft or art.
