Artist Statement

I was born in Osaka, Japan, in a house made of wood, stone, bamboo and paper.

At age 25, I relocated to New York City in 1987. Employing both ancient and modern sculpting techniques, I creates intricate and conceptually complex works that often involve childhood memories of Japan. My evocative work addresses the connection between the ephemeral nature of memory and the tangible mementos of history.

It is a continuous search filtered through time and distance.
