My desire is to find and develop my aesthetic sense by focusing on the
relationship of the old and the new. The interest in this relationship is getting wider
and wider until it reaches human, nature, and space. Until now, a lot of effort and
time were spent for develop my works, yet I want to create more inspirational and
touching works that integrate both technique and ideas through ceaseless efforts
while developing my artistic views and values.
I tasked myself with the job of creating a new hand-built vessel of mask daily.
The works, in accumulation act as a type of diary or as a call “to listen to my inner
voice.” My works explore identity and psychological conditions through the
processes of making and daily life.
