"I get inspiration from "nature's display". For example, when you walking on the road, you see a single flower blooming on road. The way wind blows petals or leaves, a water drop falling from a tree into a paddle on the ground causing ripple. I would like you to feel the strong vitality of nature from my works.
What I always keep in my mind when I create these pieces is to pursue the real expression of metal material, which is real and not real. I would like to combine the energy and softness that both metal and plants have and put them into my works." – Shota Suzuki
