The Watershed (2018)
Transforming metal into something fluid, while bending the properties of time, space and light through its mirror-like qualities using the traditional techniques of hand-hammering metal, Ozaki’s work entitled "The Watershed" is the artist’s largest wall-hanging piece ever made. A watershed in geological terms is the ridge that determines where the falling rain would eventually pool, accumulate and flow into larger rivers, and it is this mountainous divide which dictates the direction of flowing water.

Likewise, the rain that falls must someday flow into the ocean and part ways, just as human relationships must one day depart and travel to new vistas and horizons. Made as an ode to a friend who must travel on a new path in life, it is not made with sadness, however, but with the hope of meeting again, purified and rejuvenated, ultimately growing more beautiful because of this divide and parting of ways. Saying goodbye is simply the next opportunity to say hello.
