Emi Adachi3
Emi Adachi's work of art gives off something rather refreshing when it comes to using an "old-fashioned" Japanese color palette. Her paintings of children and cats who coexist so naturally reminds me of my (I'm Korean) childhood nursery books but with an aura that's a bit more odd and unusual. Be sure to check out her twitter account where she shares her fascinations with various forms of beetles and cats.

This urgent attempt at immortality remains an essential appeal of ceramics to me. Why do I make what I make? I wish to tell stories that might outlive me." -Lauren Gallaspy, Helena, Montana
