Atelier Ikigai



Blending ancient art and crafts with modern design is a hallmark of Atelier Ikigai.

Aria's artwork combines her classical Florentine and Parisian background with new innovative technologies and her studies on Eastern aesthetics and philosophies.

The artist creates exclusive fine jewellery and copper sculptures that celebrate the beauty and fragility of Nature.

With her work, she brings European design to a new level by embracing this awareness of Japanese skills and 21st century views. The essentials of both worlds are combined to bring a unique take on art and design that result in timeless jewellery and sculptures.

Atelier Ikigai also provides jewellery and art classes. Our home and studios were built in an exclusive artistic community located in the woods between Lake Biwa and Mount Hiei.
