I feel the assertion of a tree, and form while accepting it."
The process of Ukai's production involves sculpting and shaping along the eyes of the tree without deciding on the finished shape. There are times when I feel the moment when the balance between the assertion of the tree and the intentions of the creator matches, and at that time, the natural flow appears to move. I also don't want to show the process of lacquer swallowing the tree.
He feels like working with the tree. Leaves the skin of the tree, not the tree as a womb. It may be based on the respect for trees, the representatives of nature. I may not be the only one who feels fresh energy and some relief in Ukai's work at the same time.
