Noriko Hagino

The theme of my work is "lines". The appearance of lines of the same width can change by their shape. I wanted to express the interesting movements the different shaped lines create and combined them with metal colors. I also added hammered patterns so that one can feel gentleness within an air of tension and warmth inside the metal.
