rikarika's Profile

About

Hello, my name is Rika. What I do has much to do with my origin from Tokyo. My mother - a kimono-lover and tea ceremony artist, and grandmother - a seamstress and traditional Japanese calligraphy master are the two of the most influential artists in my life. They are responsible for providing me with the interest in the two things that make my profession so unique. Being exposed to such artists since birth, I was always tinkering with various creative projects even at an early age. As a sculptor by trade, I wanted to create functional artforms that reveal what I consider most important and meaningful in my life through the inherited joy of handling these textiles. My creations are also an attempt to channel my own “invented culture” of sorts - by bringing together elements of the East and the West.
I am in the process of creating a sister shop - www.bluebirdsredballoons.etsy.com
