Standard Artist / Reiko Hamano

Zodiac Sign: Libra

What are the 3 words to describe your art?
Everyday, natural, and strange.

What inspires you to use nature as one of the core languages in your work? 
As having grown up and living in cities, the existence of nature is always distant from my urbanized life. Yet, I believe that the mystical power of nature, that may be something invisible, influences our lives.



Where do you get your current inspirations from?
Everyday life, like walking on the street in the city under the sky. Also I get inspirations when I contemplate what possibly makes my previous work better or speak better.

What do you usually listen to in the studio?
Sometimes, music. Sometimes, silence.

What else would you like to be doing besides from being an artist?
Maybe, owning a shop to sell clothes and furnitures/objects.

What do you like about Doppelstandard?
Reminding me of a kind of 90s fashion style that was more into assemblage of high fashion, prêt-à-porte and vintage. Like, the 90s was when everyone does not wear same types of clothes mass-prodced by fast-fashion companies. 

What's your weekend style when you're not in the studio?Casual or simple style while going to galleries, museums, or would ideally like to go hiking but not happening when I am in the city.

3 words to describe your art meditative, light and shadow. 


What's your background and how does it have an impact on your work? 
I started out as an artist and fell into making jewelry. For a while I was trying to keep two different careers going but Now I feel that it's all blending together.  I consider my jewelry wearable art.

Why glass? 
Glass is the most inspiring material I have worked with. I guess I'm a bit of a pyromaniac,  I love that I use fire and gravity primarily as the tools to shape glass. The process of making my work is very meditative.

What's the current inspiration for your work? 

What's the most fun project you've done? 
Making all the lighting and working on the wallpaper and interiors of my husband's restaurant "Fung Tu" is the most exciting project I have worked on.

What do you like about Doppelstandard? 
The first thing that blew me away is all of the amazing Japanese vintage dresses and their unique prints as I have always loved vintage clothing. The way Andy styles the vintage pieces along with edgy yet elegant contemporary designers is unique. There is always a bit of playfulness mixed in with modern structural strong pieces. 

Apart from being an artist, name a job that you'd be interested in doing? 
Designing rugs.

What's your weekend style when you're not in the studio? 
easy silk dresses and always one of my necklaces.
