Statement

The relationships between internal and external structures in architectures are what inspired me. During construction, the contrasting relationship between these complicated reinforcing bars and incomplete outer walls are a significant inspiration.

I combine these strong contrasting relationships with skylines, the relationship between external edges of buildings with endless sky. Skylines change through the ages. So, I use different layers and colours to express some of these changes.

The internal structures of my jewellery pieces are complex and variable, while the features of the external structures are relatively simple and concise. All these internal and external contrasting relationships, complex and simple, fragile and hard, bright and dark, are my focus.

I use laser cutting on stainless steel and spray-painting on the steel surface. The stainless steel and the colourful paints are used in architecture as well. I however, use them in a different way to interpret the theme of space and containment.
