A year after their return to Canada, Satoshi and Louise, settled down on a small farm in Way's Mills, Quebec, a space which would have a major influence on their work throughout their career. They established their first studio inside an old shed to house farming machinery and built a gas kiln adjacent to it. For the first half of the seventies, they produced primarily thrown ceramic pieces using a commercial clay as their main material, but rapidly their work became more sculptural and monumental. Their desire to experiment with new glazes and textures was already manifest.
