Asuka Saito
FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
AS: I learned knowledge, standards, and education in gems and jewelry, and obtained qualifications from Gemological Institute of America (G.I.A) And I completed some courses for jewelry making skills at REVERE academy of jewelry arts. I was good with my hands and liked creating something, loved colors, and had a luxuriant imagination when I was a kid. I like express my idea, values, and imagination in design.

FS: What is "design" for you?
AS: For me, design is how we communicate what an object does, or its function, through its shape or form. Good design improves quality of life. It is not just about the aesthetic improvement of our environment – it is as much about improved quality of life, equality of opportunity and economic growth.

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
AS: Medium I work with mostly is Swarovski crystal, pearls, and natural stones. And I recently use fabric too.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?
AS: Love, respect, joy, hate, or fear.

FS: Which tools do you use during design? What is inside your toolbox? Such as software, application, hardware, books, sources of inspiration etc.?
AS: Tools I use during jewelry making are pliers, needles, wire cutters, tweezers, etc. For sources of inspiration are photographs of flowers and nature, and some fantasy novels.

FS: What are your future plans? What is next for you?
AS: My next step is to make traditional technology and techniques correspond and beyond cultures more with current lifestyles.


FS: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to interview you.
