About

I was born in a rural fishing village in northeastern Japan. My middle name comes from the local 雷電 (raiden) shrine, which is dedicated to the god of thunder and lightning.

Like lightning, I hope to keep my feet on the ground and my thoughts in the sky as I sew and hammer my way through life.

I am a woodworker and educator, inspired by the curved forms found in Scandinavian and Japanese wooden crafts, in particular the boat and bowl. 

I am currently participating in North House Folk School's new Artisan Development Program, which is an 2-year fully-funded residency program in Grand Marais, MN.

If you're interested in learning more or organizing a class or craft demonstration, please be in touch!
