. Hikari Yamaguchi's unusual vase objects consist of curved bodies that are accompanied by body-high, wing-like side parts. The surface decoration continuously covers the body and side parts, reducing the three-dimensional effect of the vase. The objects thus alternate between three-dimensionality and flatness in a most interesting way. Hikari Yamaguchi's focus is on the random colour reaction between metals, between copper plates and enamel. She uses 0.3 mm thin copper plates as canvas and paints them in enamel with compositions of lines and dots, following her intuition. The vases are fired several times. With her colourful works, Hikari Yamaguchi wants to emphasize the importance of the senses and intuition, which are increasingly being neglected compared to the assessment of technology. She would like to remind of the immediacy of sensory impressions, of the meaning of feelings and experiences.

Intro
Born in Hokkaido, Japan, I studied metal and enamel at Musashino Art University. I aim to create a work that will allow people to realize the importance of our inherent senses and intuition, which are becoming duller in today’s information society as our lives and all kinds of technology continue to get enhanced.

Statement

My work focuses on the accidental color reaction between metals, mainly copper plates and cloisonne. Using a 0.3 mm thin copper plate as the canvas and enamel paint, I painted lines and dots that I thought of unconsciously. I felt an infinite number of possibilities in the natural colors obtained from oxidizing and reducing copper plates and in the vivid colors of enamel paint.

As we live in a world of mundane information and countless man-made structures, we are losing the astonishment, emotion, abundance of curiosity, and intuition for all kinds of things we had during our childhood. The feel and smell of soil we first touched and the fact that trees are big and warm—we should not forget to always bear a pure heart.
