Born in Japan, and now living in Florence, Italy, Arata Fuchi is a contemporary jewelry maker whose work is largely influenced by the Korean Keum-Boo gilding process. His invention of an original technique of applying foils and gold wire to pure silver, as well as his pulverization process that adds texture to his pieces, are the characteristics of his design. His work is inspired by the Japanese sense of beauty from the vitality of nature.
