About my work

I see inspiration like snatching a single pea with a pair of chopstick from the river of time. Whether by chance or inevitability its presence is unmistakable. By pouring liquid metal into the mold, I put into form that essence which still linger in my mind. The history of casting itself is quite old, and the technique was already perfected in its early stages. For this reason, even though times have changed and technology has advanced, I continue to work in the same way as before. On the other hand, the metals I use as materials have existed on the earth for a much longer period of time than humans have. However, like Buddhist statues, Buddhist caskets, and bronze sculptures, for example, it changes its form, shape, significance, and role in each period of time. When the continuity and universality of the past inherent in the casting technique, the permanence and variability of metal, and my own creativity come together in the flow of time, they sublimate into a work of art.
