Intro
I make my work with an awareness of Chowa, which means mind, heart and hands in Japanese. Finding balance between beauty and imperfection, I work very intuitively and often let the materials guide me.

Artist list

Saori Kita
Perennial Moments is Saori Kita’s first solo exhibition. These intriguing and beautiful works are made by using rough cut gemstones and traditional casting techniques. Saori’s work echoes in metal, the natural forms found in the Japanese aesthetic of Ikebana and bonsai. The use of naturally occurring forms such as buds and seedpods, as well as the small imperfections caused by bugs and weather erosion act as intimate settings for her stones. She is interested in preserving the power of the natural object.

Saori says of her jewellery, ‘I make my work with an awareness of Chowa, which means mind, heart and hands in Japanese. Finding balance between beauty and imperfection, I work very intuitively and often let the materials guide me.’The exhibition, presented as a recorded development of her work, shown from earliest piece through to the last piece made, is a timeline of process and development and reflects her interest in the passing of time and seasons.
