artist: yuka ishikawa
This accessory line has been created since 2015.
I use silver, brass, and minerals and treasure a sense of coincidence and dynamism in my work.
These shapes could only be born here and now, at this moment. And in the background are the countless scenes I've witnessed so far. I hope to capture both of those aspects in my art.
yuka ishikawa accessories embody a sense of shadow, with muted light and a hint of clouded depth.
Her main materials are brass and silver. She mostly refrains from polishing to create a sense of dimly gleaming shadow. That shadowy presence hints at the passing of time and a shine that transforms throughout the ages, giving the mysterious impression of being cloaked in time itself.
Incorporating minimal light to create balance with darkness and shadow has been a part of Japanese culture since ancient times. These accessories by yuka ishikawa seem to embody this ancient Japanese aesthetic. That allows her accessories to blend naturally into your wardrobe and lifestyle.
Dimming light and taking advantage of shadow to create an overall balance - I find these accessories so appealing because they possess this Japanese aesthetic.
Incorporate these accessories that embody the ancient Japanese aesthetic of shadow and light into your clothing and life.
