1999

About

Tamiko Kawata repurposes quotidian objects and transforms them into wearable art necklaces. She likes to use overlooked indigenous objects from daily life for her medium. Discarded materials are important to her not only for environmental issues but also to reflect her current life, and a meditation on the differences between her native Japan and America. Materials: Japanese safety pins (silver, nickel, and brass-plated stainless) with gold filled wire
