I am making jewelry using minerals, old materials that passed the time.

That piece produced by Mother Earth is a condensation of thousands, tens of thousands of years time

I wear a part of the earth 

The origins of jewelry as a magical way rather than as an organizing purpose

It started as an amulet that protects us from foreign enemies

It was later used as a symbol of authority around the world

From there it became a decorative item until the present age

It was to measure differentiation from others to dress up

How was the meaning of things originally born

It was because the relationship between things was meaningful

It seems that its relationship has diminished in this modern era

I want to regain that relationship again 

I an making it with such feelings

 

Act of knitting

One braid knitting is time volume

Respect for possible minerals

I can put it in one braid

To shave stones

To make it look more beautiful

The strength seen in the roughness of the gemstone is also

The translucency which looks delicate as it seems to be broken

The existence which combines the properties of both polarities

Melt the gold and make the mold and put the stone

It will sometimes walk together the life 

It is not gorgeous 

It is like raising a cuddling feeling for that person’s daily life

I would like to keep making such things.

 

Having a place where people and objects are connected

I moved the residence to the countryside

Produce in a place surrounded by nature

To the gallery that remodeled the poultry house of 80 years and worked as a studio is a place where old things and new things mix

Modern values of discarding to destroy when it gets old

You can still use it if you add a little

There is the history of the former owner and there is beauty that added time

I’m deeply aware of Japan while traveling the world

Distinctive values such as rustling and lonely

 

Postwar Japan seeks economic development

It continued to pursue its culture and values as aiming for the United States and Europe

But as a result it is losing aesthetic sense of your country

Western religious views seeking one god

Difference in religious view of Japan that finds God everywhere in the nature of 8 million gods

Oriental and Western culture, values, view of religion, aesthetic sense etc.

We recognize the difference between them and hybridize in various ways

Old items of foreign countries in a country are arranged side by side

Made using materials such as earth, wood, iron, paper, cloth, glass, plants

A place to express works created throughout the life of the producer

As a place to connect people and people,

People and things, things and things

I will continue to learn interesting and learn from now

I seriously dream about a bright peaceful future

And I want to have a love and a passion

 

love & happy & peace & freedom
