Akira Satake discusses the moments throughout his life that come together to create his body of work from photographer to musician to ceramic artist.
In his work as a potter, Satake considers the act of creation a collaboration between himself, the clay, and the fire. In this context, collaboration means finding what the clay wants to be and bringing out its beauty in the way that the beauty of our surroundings is created through the random hand of Nature.
His approach to life can be seen much the same way; not to face it as a series of obstacles or opportunities, but as limitless chances to engage, or collaborate, with the moment.
He will discuss his multiple passions for ceramics, photography and music production, and how his life philosophy has shaped and propelled each of these careers.
