|We also have a range of beautiful brass and copper mobiles made by Japanese blacksmith, Shiori Miyajima.
After graduating Geidai Art School in 1998, Shiori focussed on creating daily ware items. She has since placed her focus on creating whimsical mobiles. The process behind these mobiles consists of planishing metal sheets with a hammer and hand-forming the mobiles herself. She uses mainly the brass and copper that she previously used to make tableware.
Shiori uses metal work as a way to express herself. She notes that she is attracted by the gradual changes of metal through forming it herself and how metal ages. She enjoys having total control by way of her hands, intuition, and sound.
Her delicate Kanehen mobile will create a sense of harmony in your space, with the elegant movement being peaceful to watch and can be viewed at our Auckland studio.
