Yuko Fujita
Kodama - return to me

Melbourne jeweller, Yuko Fujita, has transformed recycled objects of distinctly domestic and ordinary origins into bold pieces of jewellery.  Fujita’s pieces herald a new beginning for these objects, while consciously reflecting on the many lives they may have had since beginning as a tree. Careful not to erase the memory of previous incarnations, Fujita has carved and chiselled each object by hand.
Responding to an inaudible echo of the forest (Kodama), Fujita’s pieces recall imaginary plants, creatures or endangered habitats. This uplifting collection of jewellery resonates with ancient themes and traditional materials while producing work that is powerfully contemporary.

Born in Japan, Yuko Fujita first studied literature and then became interested in the stories and dialogue created with jewellery. In 2005 she completed a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Arts), Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT.

Yuko’s pieces are realised through a reaction to her materials - sometimes spontaneous, other times they evolve slowly while she allows the materials time to ‘communicate’ with her. At which time she is guided to manifest obscure images into sculptural jewellery. 

By giving free reign to the interplay between the fundamental qualities of material, texture, shape and colour, Yuko creates pieces that are intrinsically hers. Each piece is a tribute to her very personal and charming way of observing the world.

The exhibition will tie in with the State of Design Festival Look.Stop.Shop program. This year the theme is “Change by Design”.-2016-2016
