Arata Fuchi's work is inspired by the Japanese sense of beauty, that is 'beauty of form that nature, not artifice, creates' and the 'vitality of nature'.
In order to express such beauty, the jeweller developed the ancient technique of South Korea that is called Keum-Boo in her own way. By trial and error she created an original technique that she calls 'pulverisation'. With this technique the surface is covered with silver (metal) powder to make it appear rough thereby uniting regular and irregular shapes and creating 'beauty of form that nature not artifice creates'.
