After working freelancer in Ira Slater and Art production, in 2007, he set up a studio in Yamaguchi, and works with iron, creating abstract sculptural objects, as well as utensils, vessels and hand-built stands and desk lamps.
Oyama uses the properties of iron and age old methods to create textures and aged patinas on his iron pieces.
I predominantly use the medium of pen and ink with the detail and the building up of shadows and depth with straight lines”. The actual sizes of the pictures vary enormously. They all, however, no matter how large or small, contain the same singularly detailed and minute focused attention that I feel has become my hallmark.
