“When I first ran into lasercutting a few years ago, it was love at first sight. It was a bit of a blind crush. Because without any knowledge about this technique, I signed the order form for my first lasercutter.
In the past 5 years, I’ve done countless hours of lasercutting, including many filled with trial and error. Even now, with a fair share of technical knowledge and experience, I still continue learning through various experiments with new materials.
The name HOSHII? It is Japanese. I graduated from university with a master’s degree in Japanology, but I left that career path after a few years of working for various companies. The word “hoshii” refers to a feeling, a desire, a kind of love at first sight with objects. That is exactly the feeling that I want my lasercut objects to evoke.”
