With my work I try to represent the emotions in this world. The sadness, anger and the dark emotions that can’t be described by words. When I tried to shape those directly, it took the form of a person naturally. The pieces are not supposed to be practical tools but rather a medium to representing who I am. I craft those to grow closer to people’s hearts.

When I began to understand the Japanese concept of “Danshari” (The art of decluttering), I learned to focus on simplifying both the result and the process of my craft and life. As you are born, you are the purest. As you die, you are the simplest.
