Intro
Yukiko Kakimoto is a visual artist.
For many years, she has built many careers while presenting artwork. As dots connect and make a line, her past knowledge and experience were brought together and guided by something, her jewelry works were born.

Statement

Small palm-sized art that is wearable.
Jewelry is one of the fashion items that attract many people at any age, but I would like to cast a good spell on you with a brooch that you put near your heart.
It's made of pottery. I created it from scratch, borrowed the power of fire god to bake the base, and colored it with the technique of Kintsugi. I make the whole process with my own hands. So, each brooch is different and unique in the world.
Kintsugi is Japanese unique culture, that bonds cracked or chipped ceramics with lacquer and restores it by decorating the joint with gold, silver or tin. It was born from the delicate aesthetic sense of the Japanese which values and adores even the flaws.
The natural lacquer extracted from plants slowly hardens over time, and by coating many times, it hardens even more. It is a bit similar to our life, which follows the process of destruction and regeneration, sometimes leaving all to God, but eventually grows with love.
Please feel the high vibration from the small artwork carefully made of natural materials that are friendly to people and the earth.
I will continue to create unique works that touch someone's heart while combining beautiful Japan's unique culture with the present age.
