I created the image of an hourglass.
There is a crack on a straight line from top to bottom, but I am glad if you enjoy it as part of the design.
Series work that is cut out from the log called "Gorotans."
The root part of a tree that is left behind for reasons of "bent and hard to use" and "irregular" when cutting trees.
This is called "Gorotan" in the forestry term in Japan.
It takes a long time for such a large log to return to the soil, and in the meantime, if it is swept away by rain or sediment disaster, there is a risk that accumulates large damage to the river and the dam.
I would like to rescue the people around me, and to transform them into wonderful, and to make the forest and peoples lives better.
■ "What you think is good from the heart" to the next generation
We want to use good things for a long time.
There are four conditions in our work.
Life is enriched
Things that don't get bored
To be able to fix
It is durable, and the mind is a little more than usual when there is it, and the design which makes you want to touch it is simple, and I try to make such a thing that can be used for a long time by fixing it even when it is broken by any chance.
■ Actually use it this way.
I use it for a side table next to a sofa.
Place a vase or a plant with a piece of cloth.
I put it in the entrance, and I use it for the luggage use when I put a small accessory and wear shoes.
