Catalogue Note

I am always drawn to the visual impact of an aggregate assembled with many small components and find infinite possibilities of the form multiplied ….. uncontrollable beauty is the core of my concept." Junko Mori (b.1974) is a Japanese metalworker and graduate of Camberwell College of Arts in London, who creates hand-forged works which are both organic and minimalist. The Sheffield Assay Office was the sponsor enabling her to begin silver work in the UK, and as a result, the first silver piece she ever made is in their collection. Junko made her first appearance at Chatsworth in 2007 as part of a metalwork festival, Galvanize Sheffield, when she was selected by the Sheffield Assay Office to create a steel chandelier in the Great Dining Room. Her work is held in many collections including the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh; British Museum, London; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Honolulu Museum of Art; and the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide, among others. She is based in North Wales.
