Contemporary Jewellery Exhibition
Mariko is inspired by Japanese traditional architecture, which is an essential part of human lives as a central part of a culture and a place where people have basic connections with natural surroundings. Enamelling with simple colours enables her to explore her images of natural materials and textures which can be found in Japanese architecture.
Mariko graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2011 and has had an amazing year since then, exhibiting her work in the UK and internationally including at SOFA New York 2012 and Galerie Marzee’s International Graduate Show 2011.
