■技法説明 型絵焼箔の作品について

〇 Artist message
I lived in Okinawa for 6 years from 1994. I still stay in the atelier in Itoman several times a year for interviews and production. The red castle in the work is Shuri Castle, which disappeared two years ago. It seems that it will be a long time before we can see that beautiful figure again. Sea turtles swimming in the sky of Okinawa have appeared in my works for many years as my favorite motif.

■ Technique explanation: About the work of sheet metal
A sterling silver foil is pressed on a part or the entire surface of the work, a pattern is placed on it, and the cut out shape is sulfurized and discolored to make the picture stand out. The finish is slightly colored with glue and pigments. I have never seen such a work expression, so it may be the only one in Japan, but I have not confirmed it.
