at Tokyo University of the Arts. Sasaki successively held the teaching

His work is based on idea of the formation of material awareness through ceramic practices.

He has focused on interactive relationship between the ceramic artist and clay as one of the important elements of his creation, and considered how his ideas can be formed and presented in studio work.
