Handing down our declining heritage through future generations by renovating Japanese traditional arts and hearts. The supreme art and traditions of the ” kimono and obi ” handed down to us through generations is what I try best to bring to my glass work in Japan. Decreasing opportunities in the modern world to wear kimono and obi has caused a decline in the numbers of artisans skilled in the production of such fine art. Is it right that we should lose such heritage and beauty in this way? We do need to pass them down all the more today. I have sought a way to pass on the beauty of this art in Kimono and glass that I learned via architectural works and started to produce the work myself. Original materials of my piece are “Kimono” and “Obi” that come to me through the arts of the masters whose souls and skills are seen in the colorfully stained threads that they spun and the gold and silver threads they weaved in the countless days. I have tried to put new life into the art of kimono and obi through the fine art of Japanese glass with a leading-edge technique. I will have blissfulness if I can have a role in renovating our supreme arts and hearts in new forms and handing down our tradition through future generations.
