“Alchemy is a spell that produces precious metal from base metal.
Alchemy fuses with various ideas, and beginswith the quest for the philosopher’s stone that transcends the providence of life, but in the end it did not come true
I think contemporary art, jewelryare modern alchemy.Because artists can create un limited value from nothing.
When I heard this theme, I felt it was part of my underlying concept.
I get a lot of inspiration from nature. Then, the inorganic matter called metal is transformed into an organic matter by the means of expression called jewelry,because I want to infuse new blood,life into it.What I created existsas my child, the life that inherits my DNA. Even if I don’t exist, my childrenwill leave my existence, DNA to posterity forever. It is a philosopher’s stone that can obtainimmortality, which the alchemist could not find.” -Arata Fuchi
