Message from the Artist:

I am working on a modern enamel technique by combining traditional enamel technique (cloisonne) and industrial enamel technique (enamel). The traditional painting method has the disadvantage where the color is beautiful, but it takes a lot of time and effort, and the strength is weak. The industrial enamel technique has good strength and usability, but the color expression is industrial and limited.

I have titled these two techniques and are using them in my work. Enamel coating on many types of surfaces (both sides or one side) that can be imaged with copper not only adds a beautiful rich color, but also makes it easier to use in everyday life. I intend to make the hull shape of the work stand out more through the color expression of these works, and to blend in better with the space in which it is placed.

The glaze pattern and color that are slightly different each time, and the shape of the metal plate being deformed while being heated. These things are piled up as data step by step through experience, but I don't know where the end is. I seem to be doing the same work, but I don't know if I'm doing a new work that day. It is my wish to share the beauty of each of these works with the viewers (users) and make them curious about what follows.

In addition to cutlery, it can also be used as a coaster for small cups. Cutlery, chopsticks, etc. won't run down because it's not thick.
