Mariko Sumioka, a jewelry artist who continues to present her works mainly in the UK and around the world,
Koichi Io is a metalworker whose works are in the collections of the V&A Museum and Jeju City, South Korea.
Made from the same metal,
We will exhibit works by two artists who are active both domestically and internationally.

At first glance, metal seems solid and sometimes cold.
Inspired by Japanese tiled roofs,
Jewelry expressed as a collection of metal parts with a soft expression,
Although it is monochromatic, it gives a sense of color,
A sculptural vessel that gives you a new sensation.

Reinterpreted from two people's perspectives,
Please take a look at the various expressions of metal.
