Yuki Sumiya (selected for Schmuck) with her “GARDEN ” series

Yuki Sumiya was student at Alchimia. Experimenting with the ideal relationship between man and nature.

« The ordinary and the extraordinary, existence and disappearance, permanence and transience, inside and outside, stillness and flow, visible and invisible…
My central theme is duality: focusing on the co-existence of two concepts, and then looking at the relationship between the two. Through my jewellery, I tyr to make the invisible visible.« 

« I see this, in the synthesis of the natural and man-made in a beautiful garden,
where the gardeners have thinned out the cedar trees,
erected fences incorporating the original trees,
and also sown lawns interspersed with concrete surfaces,
the perfect balance that can be achieved between nature and human intervention moves me.
I want to ask, “How can we, man and nature, co-exist?””

In the ‘Garden’ series, I’m principally experimenting with the ideal relationship between man and nature. When I see this, for example in the synthesis of the natural and man-made in a beautiful garden, where the gardeners have thinned out the cedar trees, erected fences incorporating the original trees, and also sown lawns interspersed with concrete surfaces, the perfect balance that can be achieved between nature and human intervention moves me. I want to ask, “How can we, man and nature, co-exist?”
In the ‘Garden’ series, both the materials, silver and synthetic sponge, come originally from under the earth, since synthetic sponge is made from oil. When I use green sponge in my work, I use it to symbolize nature, but actually it is a man-made copy of nature.
This complex aspect of the combination of natural metal with synthetic sponge also raises the question of where the value lies in the piece.Yuki Sumiya - “GARDEN ” seriesYuki Sumiya – “GARDEN ” Brooch -oxidized silver, sponge
