Tracing the Passing of the Time

A bowl using high-quality Japanese paper made from the bark. Inspired by the profound feeling and textures of old wood bowl which embody the Japanese concept “SABI”. The passage of time gives the artifacts life and elegance that can’t create with intentionaly. I traced the bowl by overlapping it with pieces of Japanese paper. After that, peeled parts of paper from the bowl. It were like fragment of abandoned but when it’s combined again into one, it represented a reverberation of life which is extracted from the original.
