Contemporary Art Jewelry for N°4.
“N°4” is a heart chakra. Every object has its own wave, which more or less are repercussive with one another on a daily basis. Contemporary Art that you can wear, and I'm making them for your N°4.
Do you know "Kintsugi"?
The process of creating jewelry depicts one’s life.
“Kintsugi” is unique to the Japanese culture; it repairs cracked, split pottery. This unique technique not only repairs a vessel with Urushi through gluing, but also decorates the cracked points with gold, silver, tin, etc. Kintsugi was born from the delicate aesthetic sense of the Japanese, who value and appreciate even the broken traces. The virtue of “incomplete” or “fragile” that we Japanese people cherish must have led to this unique technique. Urushi, extracted from natural plants, slowly hardens itself and gets stronger when they are painted over and over. This process seems to reflect life itself, in which we experience joy, sorrow, corruption, healing, and love.
With love, we humans feel whole; similarly, Urushi becomes hardest by the love with which an artist makes their creation.
We are part of nature.
As you know, there are many environmental issues around us as we live on this planet. We have lost so much through wars and natural disasters, but this has made us stronger. Just like nature changes as we speak, we change as time passes. We belong to nature, and with the idea reflected in my work, I “speak” with nature and expect its grace. All of my work, I believe, after worn out by their holders, will go back to the earth, just like we humans will do the same. I dedicate myself to the world of creation with love, passion and prayer.
