Yoko Izawa

Born: 1966

"When immersed in creative activities I feel that the sense of beauty and value within my culture surfaces and moulds my work. For my means of expression, I feel more comfortable when the work has a quality of ambiguity or transience.
My interest has been for sometime in containing, covering, or wrapping things. The search has been for something elusive. The function and material nature of jewellery does not concern me as much as the presence and feeling of an object.
Veiled jewellery reflects my assumption that although certainty is often required in modern society, ambiguous expression has been the most distinctive characteristic found in Japanese values and religious beliefs."
