Kazunori Koutsuka (Tochigi)

“For me, wood is like a god.”

Kazunori Koutsuka loves handcrafted works when he was young. Even though he had thought about being a professional soccer player, he believes that he will enjoy a lot more to be a craftsman. And so, he had chosen to become a wood craftsman.

He enjoys designing the shapes of wood works because he thinks the shape is like a magic which gives a soul to a piece of work. He wishes that his works can bring convenience to people’s lives. And this is why, he is so grateful to the mother nature that he is able to use wood to serve everyone.
