Since the 1980s, he has been giving out the < BONES > series made of glass and iron, the motif of which is the fish bone. Through his own experience of lingering on the brink of death and overcoming it, he projects his strong volitive energy for life on the molding of bones conscious of death of the living creature. The whitish glass bones made by glass-blowing technique are built into a vertical structure. Each bone reflecting the light and showing delicate aspects is the expression of the heartthrob of the artist himself and make the viewer feel a foreboding of a new life cycle.
