The World of Kaori Azuma

 

She uses white clay as a material.

After sculpting the molded work into an ellipse, she covers it slightly with white soil

and scratches it spirally with a needle.

This elliptical pattern is drawn by imagining the shell of the ocean, and it expresses the swirl pattern of shining shells on the beach.

On the surface of the work there are delicate irregularities, and when it reflects on the light glittery shine is seen.

Through the work, she is expressing her unique world view, delicacy, femininity, not just a pattern.
