Temari 2


Finally Temari was completed, I uploaded them at the gallery in this site. I likened temari’s sphere to the earth, and a migratory fish is swimming on the surface of it. For me, this fish is a symbol of the freedom because there’re many inconveniences nowadays…lol. I gave auspicious words as a subtitle to each work in the hope that fortune will come to those who take it in one’s hand. The starting date of the exhibition was decided on 17th February, I’ll exhibit them at that time. If you’ll come to see actually, I’d be happy 😊


今日母から荷物が届きました。その中に母が作った着物の端切れで作ったコースターを一緒に入れてもらいました。何故なら今作ってる日本画材製手毬の展示に使いたかったからです。手毬の方はまだ未完成ですが乗せてみたらめっちゃ可愛い☆完成まであともう一息頑張ります^ ^

Today I received a package from my mom. I begged her to send me coasters she made using fragments of kimono, because I wanna exhibit my latest work “temari” made by Japanese painting materials with her coasters. Although temari doesn’t complete yet, the combination of them is so cute 🥰 I’ll do my best till it’s completed:)

New year

早いものでドイツに戻ってから半年が経ちました。日本からドイツへの移動も含めると半年の間に5回も引っ越しをしました笑。必然的に物を増やさない生活となり、生活必需品以外は無くても何とかなるという事を悟りました。もしくは欲しい物は作れば良いです。例えば音楽は私にとって重要だけど自分で奏でる方が楽しいのでオーディオ機器よりもピアノを選びます。今後の生活がどう展開するのか未知数だけど今のスタンスは変わらない気がします。さて今年の抱負はまずドイツ語の勉強を頑張る事です。時間配分が苦手なので作品作りに集中し始めると勉強が疎かになり、中々語学が上達しません。なので語学学習と作品制作を両立させたいです。そしてドイツでアーティストとしての仕事をしっかり確立する事、人との繋がりを大切にする事が目標です。時々息抜きしつつ頑張ります^ ^

It’s already been half a year since I returned to Germany. Including the move from Japan to Germany, I moved 5 times in this period lol. I inevitably realized that I would have a life without increasing stuffs, and that I could live without anything other than daily necessities. Or I can make what I want. For example, music is important to me, but it’s more fun to play it myself, so I choose the piano over audio equipment. I don’t know how my life will develop from now on, but I feel that my current stance won’t change. Now, this year’s aspiration is to study German more. I’m not good at allocating time, so if I start to concentrate on making works, my studies will be neglected and my language skills won’t improve. So I want to balance language learning and work production. And my goal is to firmly establish my job as an artist in Germany and to value the relationship with people. I’ll do my best while taking a break from time to time 🙂
