Artist list

Jiro Kamata

The work of Jiro Kamata is fascinating because of it's perfect surface, highlevel goldsmithing and also because of it's affinity to fashion. It is young and powerful and in the same moment very delicate and poetic. Jiro Kamata likes to play with traditional moments and transform them into our contemporary view on things.

The beauty of nature is a very important topic in the traditional japanese culture. Jiro Kamata threats this with a lot of respect and finds a new, contemporary way to express the beauty of butterflys or blossoms.

Kamata is very fascinated by the European tradition of goldsmithing. The beauty of precious stones inspired him to work with shiny sunnglases he decorated with ornaments very similar to cutted stones.

The appereance of that necklaces connects a lot of aspects: It is very careful done craft, it looks very fashionable and it is a statement about contemporary jewellery.
