KURIHARA AKIKO
"I like to challenge myself to expand the possibilities of the jewelry, even if they are small objects."
biography

Akiko Kurihara was born in Sapporo, Japan. She graduated in 1999 at Hiko Mizuno College of Jewelry in Tokyo and in 2004 moved in Germany to study at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste München, Schmuck und Gerät with the Professor and artist Otto Künzli. She now lives and works in Milan.

statement

Casual discoveries in daily life, and small findings in physical phenomena which we unconsciously use. I create jewelry pieces out of such discoveries using humor and wit in minimalistic ways. I like to challenge myself to expand the possibilities of the jewelry, even if they are small objects. And I expect that humor and wit in my work would connect me to the person wearing my piece, as well as to people seeing the piece..
