On Jiro works:
The work of Jiro Kamata is fascinating because of it's perfect surface, highlevel goldsmithing and also because of it's affinity to fashion. It is young and powerful and in the same moment very delicate and poetic. Jiro Kamata likes to play with traditional moments and transform them into our contemporary view on things.
