“In the process of creating each form, I see the whelming heavy and cold feature peculiar to [iron] rebirth eventually into something contrary to its original feature.
People sought in art crafts not only [usefulness] but [beauty].
Artists as creators, on the other hand, in complying to the quest for [beauty],  have obtained a joy in [creating].
Such relationship has hence borne a high artistic spirit that connects [human] and [object].
Having myself as an artist in such circumstances is the great joy that I more than appreciate.”
