本郷 真也
(Shinya Hongo)


I perceive the property of iron to continue rusting, as analogous with the providence of life. This characteristic to constantly evolve in the flow of time is precious and brilliant, and I believe it is in itself the beauty of life. The iron resonates with this idea. While wielding a hammer and in earnest conversation with the material, I am always conscious of expressing the essence of life in the process of shaping the iron.
