I was born in Japan, but now work in Florence, Italy. My work receives inspiration from the Japanese sense of beauty, that is 'beauty of form that nature not artifice creates' and the 'vitality of nature'.
To express these, I developed the ancient technique of South Korea that is called Kum-Bu (Keum-Boo) in my own way. From trial and error, I created an original technique I call pulverization.
For this technique, the surface is covered with silver (metal) powder to make the surfaces rough and irregular. With this irregular shadow a peculiar feeling is expressible.
