Deeply caring for the relationship between human and object. Maki works metal into pieces where the functional and sensory meet reoccuring themes such as memory and emptyness.
Never with a downhearted sense of loss or hollowness but with a life affirming melancholy where by Maki passes her work to wearer or viewer with a notion that it only marks the beginning of the story. Her works hopes to encourage the filling in of blanks with own memories and experience. Empty space as an invitation to continue the story together with the object as a life companion.
