I encountered with metal art at the University in the United States when I learned three-dimensional design. I got some parts of iron scrap at a junkyard and welded them to make a work of art. It was excited to welding work at first but was very hard for me to complete making it, I remember, was one of the most memorable experiences in my mind.
The time has passed when I was in London. I just stopped by a Jewellery store and looked at a yellow gem which was very impressive on me. I asked a clerk timidly as I did not have any knowledge about gems what the stone was. It was a yellow diamond he said gently. Needless to say but it was shining beautifully. The brilliance had been in my mind for a while after returning to my home. Even now, I remain in my mind.
My jewellery carrier is originally inspired by these two experiences. I came to know that there was a technique of Japanese traditional metalwork which has been developed independently in Japan. I would like to continue studying about the characteristics of gems and metals and about this fine traditional metalwork of Japan through my creating jewellery activity.
I thank my teachers and friends who teach me a lot of enjoyment of creating and my family.
