Junko Mori (森 純子 Mori Junko?) is a Japanese metalworker. She was born in Yokohama, Japan in 1974. She graduated in from Musashino Art University in Tokyo in 1997 with her first BA in three-dimensional design. Mori then worked as a welder in a factory for one year. From 1998 to 2000, she studied silversmithing and metalwork at Camberwell College of Arts in London. Mori then spent two years as artist-in-residence at Liverpool Hope University.

Her work consists of many hand-forged pieces joined together in a form that is both organic and minimalist, such as Propagation Project in the collection of the Honolulu Museum of Art.
