Creative Spark! Why do YOU make art?

From Such Capable Hands…”Why do I make art? Because I am an artist. It’s my nature to express my passion. I can’t help it although I know it’s tough to make a living by it. Of course I could have chosen paint, sculpture, music, or anything to express. The reason why I chose jewelry might be the fact that I was set on fire by antique jewelry. If I hadn’t met antique jewelry, I would have never been a jewelry artist.” – Kazuhiko Ichikawa
