Coexistence of two textures born in nature.

THE SKIN WEARING TIME

ART INSTALLATION

“TOKYO DESIGN TIDE” is an event of design held in Tokyo Midtown.
Sei Yamazaki exhibited his works in “KAWARA EXHIBITION”, a special exhibition by several JAGDA members held at 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT.

In this exhibition, the designer is given clay before firing and is asked to make two tiles to display.

The theme of this work is the theme of a timeline of inherited traditions and the natural shapes that have been constructed over time.

As such, the work is composed of two methods. I pounded some stones found on the banks of the Tama River onto the soil before firing, and then I created a piece of work in which the shapes created by nature are combined into a single piece. A rock surface scooped up to volume and laminated with intense, sharp angles of time. The water surface is polished in water, and a gentle and gentle rock surface is scooped out.

The two grains born in nature coexist in a single piece of work and are fired in the kiln of Hachigo-tile.
