Rie Sasaki continues to hold exhibitions to introduce her explorations in metal combining different materials which create harmony and balance.

Forging metal from metal plate or rod with various hammers mainly
using traditional techniques.
Communication is the seed of my artwork, though which it is possible
to connect with many people.
Each artwork tells a story, in which the viewer is an integral part,
creating their own narrative.
