Intro
I live and work in Japan. Studied in Glasgow School of Art. I enjoy exploring materials to find where they can meet my idea. Experiencing daily life and materials are my great inspiration.

Statement

She explores materials to express intangible and fleeting beauty like light and shadow, or colour of the sky. She aims to capture the beauty of imperfection and impermanence and own the fragments of the momentary beauty of this world.

She destroys and reconstructs materials digesting her experience. Eggshell is crushed to create the cracking surface that looks as if the moment was frozen. Seashell is cut into tiny chips that flicker iridescently. The stone-like surface is made from powdered mineral stones, finding time in their solidity and permanence. She uses materials as her non-verbal language.
