Every day I work aiming at a refined degree of perfection. As materials to express my inspiration into shape, I mainly use washi (traditional Japanese paper), which allows the creation of many images. In my production I am very interested in exploring the versatility of washi, its wide-ranging processing and its possibilities in expressive decoration.
