NONA creates art works by corresponding the nature and own sense. To create natural-dye colors with plants is to receive the life from nature again.

To make a traditional temari is like traveling the time. NONA wants to create something new yet you feel years passed through somewhere in it.

9 is one before 10. It’s considered as imperfect in Japan. Because it is not perfect, it will continue forever. NONA will travel the pass by challenging new possibilities.

To live with temari and enjoy the journey of life naturally leads to pass the culture to the next generation in the end.
