The quest for simplicity and balance through Japanese art

All my life I have been heavily influenced by Japanese art and traditions.

From Mishima and his writings dealing with the beauty of the evanescent moments of life, through the elegance of a miniature Japanese maple under the influence of an imaginary wind, or the impression of simplicity of the stage change of the No theater, to the art of Japanese calligraphy painted in a few strokes of tsuketatefude, everything inspires me in this perpetual search for balance, the simplification of forms and research to tame the complexity of the forces.

I wanted to translate this apparent simplicity into a ring with a clean exterior shape, but which hides in its inner face a complex network of circles.

The ring is set with black diamonds around the edge and white diamonds on the sides.
