My work aim is to harmonise my Japanese origin with life in U.K.
I interpret a concept of Japanese minimalism to that of European jewellery making techniques which I apply to contemporary wearable jewellery, and from this I have developed my style and continually try to perfect the technical aspects of my work.
My inspiration derives mainly from nature, which I interpret and transform into sculptural forms.
I am attracted to tactile quality; the softness and strength of forms and feel of the surface are intrinsic to my theme of tranquil movement and the serene moment. The philosophy behind this has driven me to search for serenity within myself. Focusing on these experiences has influenced my design with function and touch which I hope to give calmness and relaxation in the wearer.
