Starting with a dialog between memory and sensation, the work connects the material with emotion, an expression of intimate feelings through creations.

Intro
I went alone to Barcelona in 2008. I graduated from professor Ramon Puig Cuyás’s class at Escola Massana in Artistic Jewelry and performed an internship with the jeweler Marc Monzó, with additional experience from assisting in Carles Codina’s workshop for 2 years. Moved my base in 2015 to my hometown in Tokyo, Japan coordinating exhibitions to divulge contemporary jewelry from Barcelona and Japan.
 

Statement

My work finds a dialog between my remote memory and the sensation created by my current personal environment. I try to get closer to the essence shared by these two vastly distant moments. The personal environment has changed the way I work; we express deeply personal and intimate feelings through creation. With that in mind, I could say my work has strengthened its link with my current life. The need for creation can’t be tamed. When this anxiety emerges, I observe it and let my thoughts flow. I’m unaware of what path it will take, nor I know how intense the conflict that will follow in the course of this profound voyage. A necessary step to investigate what lies behind this recurring occurrence. I search for shapes and processes that feel connected to my emotions. Although it doesn’t show in the final pieces, I see necessary spending time with the materials, sharing moments together. My pieces have evolved from the hard cylindrical shapes I used to cast, into other profiles with softer materials. Following this interior search, my mental journey has taken me to this place. To become as sincere as possible, I accept it and enjoy its possibilities.
