Interview with Asuka Saito at Saturday 17th of March 2018

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 wanted to express my idea, values, and imagination in design by using colors and I decided to follow my inspiration to become a jewelry designer when I found there was 'jewelry design' in design field. While gaining some experience at a jewelry store, I have obtained qualifications from Gemological Institute of America and learnt some jewelry making skills at Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts.

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 in silver mtg. etc. And I recently use fabric too. I love trying to use something new.

FS: When do you feel the most creative?
AS: When amazing ideas come up in my mind.

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

FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
AS: I get a lot of inspiration from everywhere when I walk outside seeing nature, the organic shapes and colors of flowers, leaves, and trees, talk to other artists about their creativity, and have a dream while asleep.

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 making jewelry 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: How can people contact you?
AS: Email


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