Iron, I Am Thinking Upon
People usually think of industrial or commercial products when they think of iron. Its shapes are limited by its uses. A square construct, this piece shows that iron is versatile in every single direction. The artist chose to put together many pieces, something he has never tried before. The audience can feel the weight of iron, and also see the many ways it can be put together in different directions.

Keizo Tawa
With more than 30 years of experience, Keizo Tawa is one of the top metal sculptors in Japan. His creations center on the idea that they must show the “true face of iron”. He does not limit himself to special shapes that limit the potential of iron, but instead uses cubical shapes to show the weight of the material. His works are full of hammering marks, as he spends about 8 hours at the anvil and takes about 3 months to finish one piece. “You can call me a fool”, he said. Iron is an ally, and the time he spends at the anvil is the same as chatting with a friend, and the dialogue can be seen in the result.
