Intro
Handcrafting is very important in my creation, because we cannot ignore the “characters” of the material themselves. Handmade like a direct way of communication, face to face. I don't like the feeling of "driving" materials, which is a bit strong and conceited. I think materials need to be respected, like respecting plants, respecting nature and living spirits, so hand creation is a good way to understand materials. I desire an equal creative relationship between material and me.
