My work receives inspiration from the Japanese sense of beauty, that is ‘beauty of form that nature not artifice creates’ and the ‘vitality of nature’.
To express these, I developed the ancient technique of South Korea that is called Kum-Bu (Keum-Boo) in my own way. From trial and error, I created an original technique I call pulverization. For this technique, the surface is covered with silver (metal) powder to make the surfaces rough and irregular. With this irregular shadow a peculiar feeling is expressible.
Artificial shape doesn’t exist in an organic life, mysterious power operates, and beautiful shape comes.
And, it’s full of vital energies.
I think that I can give the life to jewellery that uses only an inorganic material by receiving the inspiration from an organic life.
Beauty of form that Nature not Artifice creates.
Intended shape is made when the regular and the irregular unite.
It is in the making of one beautiful shape for a small point to accumulate,to connect to become a line,to become a facet,and to show various aspects.
