Intro
Jiro Kamata works with glass. The inorganic material is brought to life by the light refractions. Beams are captured, reshaped and transmitted to the wearer of the piece. The colours, shapes and shadows are affected by the perspective - an interaction between material, environment and receiver. 

Artist list

Jiro Kamata
Kamata’s new work are made using dichroic mirror, a material that is used in optical applications and architecture. The mirrors have a filter that let some light colours pass through while reflecting others. 


For me the light is a living thing. It is moving everywhere, getting stronger or weaker, changing colour... actually people are wearing light, but most of us don’t realize it. I was fascinated by the material’s unusual colour reflections and knew immediately that I wanted to make jewellery with it. / Jiro Kamata
