My sculptures have their own whimsical world like us. I open windows and make them visible, and show people their reflection upon their own lives.

I use arc welding. It presents different characteristics for construction and provides opportunities with its fluid and lumpy texture. The burned and smoky looking texture helps me to reflect the life from past to future. I really enjoy bringing wonderful, unique characters together for a single window I open.

My works are also a kind of reaction towards the definition of steel as being cold. With metal, control stays with you! In return, it requests only one thing: that you expose the warmth in its essence. That is what I try to achieve. I believe that metal will stay warm as long as it serves art!
