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
