What is important for daily life tools is ease of use and beauty. We inherit the tradition of “use and beauty” that Tamba-yaki is proud of, and express a new Tamba-yaki that coexists with modern life.
The main material used is glass, and the casting technique is used to create popsicle motifs. The “cool it” series, in which a white bear is made into a character, is based on the concept of a mass-consumption society that combines a disappearing synonym for environmental protection and “kawaii,” a Japanese pop culture word for cute, by taking the form of a melted popsicle. The artist attempts to address the contradictions and ironies that lurk in modern society. Yu Uchida HP http://yuuchida.com/
I would like to express what I feel in my modern life and the imaginary world that is born from it, while crossing them with the charm of the glass material. Glass shows various expressions depending on the production process. When melted at high temperatures, it becomes fluid like syrup, and the surface that was exposed to the air when it melted has a beautiful luster, while the surface that was in contact with the mold has a soft texture like frosted glass. Also, when copper is added, the color changes to red or blue. While drawing out the charm of the various kinds of glass, I aim to create works that will make the viewer’s imagination grow.
I use metal forging and engraving techniques. I cut out animals and ordinary scenes from everyday life and make them into works of art. I hope you can feel the fascination of metal materials.
