Note

Text from object entry in A. Game (2016) ‘Contemporary British Crafts: The Goodison Gift to the Fitzwilliam Museum’. London: Philip Wilson Publishers: Junko Mori studied Three-Dimensional Design at Musashino Art University in Tokyo and spent a year working for a firm of industrial metal fabricators before coming to the UK to study metalwork at Camberwell College of Arts, London. She spent a year as artist-in-residence at Liverpool Hope University, establishing her first studio in Manchester in 2002, before moving to her current studio in the Lleyn Peninsula in North Wales in 2009. She has produced major works to commission for, amongst others, the Sheffield Assay Office and Peter Jones in London who invited her to create a major sculpture Sprig for their refurbished Sloane Square store. She has developed a distinctive body of sculptural work in both steel and silver in response to the microscopic structures of plant forms. Junko Mori: ‘I am always drawn to the visual impact of an aggregate assembled from many small components. My work consists of multiples of individually forged steel or other metals, and the subtle difference of each piece results from hand hammering. No piece is individually planned but becomes fully formed within the making and thinking process.’
