■Wedding Dress

She has been making what she calls "Otsuru-san" using torn origami or advertising paper folded into shapes similar to cranes and then attaching them to various things since 2015. This work was born of her desire to " wear a wedding dress" fashioned by attaching "Otsuru-san" to non-woven fabric and lace. In addition to dresses, wedding preparation goods such as wedding cakes, veils, and bags are steadily being prepared with her treasured staff members in mind.


■Wedding Aisle (Virgin Road in Japanese)

A wedding aisle covered with "Otsuru-san" made with torn advertising fliers and colored construction paper. It took more than six months to complete.


■Wedding Cake

A wedding cake made by pasting "Otsuru-san" which is hand-torn pieces of advertising or colored paper onto non-woven fabric or colored paper. The cake is filled with “Otsuru-san.


■Kekkon no Hon (The Book of Marriage)

She started this creation because she wanted to make a marriage book (Bible). She has completed the books one after another and continues to create them now.


■Box

The impetus for this work was wanting to paste “Otsuru-san” on a box. After the "Ozuru-san" is pasted on the colored paper several times, the surface becomes thicker by further layering the colored paper.
