Miki Asai

Miki Asai’s jewellery is inspired by intangible and those fleeting and changeable phenomenon, and how this portrays the nature of everything in the world. Her aesthetics and concept are strongly based on her Japanese aesthetic that finds beauty in impermanence, imperfection, transience and ephemerality.
She creates jewellery that captures and preserves momentary beauty to own the fragments of a fleeting world, life and everything.

Her work explores where concept, materiality and design meet. The soft and organic forms, fading colour, cracking effect of eggshell, iridescent surface of pearls and surprising lightness of paper and aluminum explain her feelings on transience and fleetingness often introducing Japanese traditional techniques and materials like Japanese lacquer, pearls or pigments in her own way.
