I make reliefs and statues using urushi ( Japanese ancient technique of Dakkanshitsu ).
Urushi is natural material and used for making Buddha statues which are regarded as
Because of its warmness,urushi has been believed to represent spiritual nature
and inner surface of people.
To deal with urushi is great to create my art because of its lightness ( statue by
Dakkanshitsu become empty inside ),strength,and ideal to express what I would like to.
Today people often miss voices of nature because of their busy life.
I would like to make my art in order to represent such a gleam of replaceable life and
sound of nature.
Sometimes we have to face threats of nature. Gifts of nature are normally tolerant
to people,but when it changes into threats,all we can do is to pray for living,
whereas other animals accept the threats and live calm in the great nature.
I selected animals and plants like penguins,birds,and beans as the motives that identify
such people's emotions.
