With the motif of “Kyu – Jyu”, – mysterious imaginary creatures emphasizing its roundness, I express the power and preciousness of life by wood carving.
I happened to meet Netsuke in an antique market, and I was fascinated by its rounded shape and the passion of wood carving.
I started carving wood by myself when I was in university.
Not having a fixed size and maintaining the round shape that I’m fascinated, I create various kinds of work that vary in size from small to large.
In my personal exhibition in Tokyo and in some exhibits in department stores, I present wood carvings “Kyu-Jyu”, where you can see the animal’s lovely expressions and movements in this tiny rounded wood.
To make a sculpture that will surely fascinate people, I carefully carve every part of them so that you can enjoy it from all angles.
I hope you to feel the gentleness of the creatures’ world through the warmth of wood.
