Maybe I have seen before.
But I never seen before.
Most things in our modern world are produced by machines. Isn’t it time to balance out the role of machines and the role of hand craft in modern design?
Mechanical work + Hand work
I am obsessed with drawing by hand.
There must be beauty that can only be created by human hands. It is closer to the natural and more comfortable for
humans to behold.
I found the contrast arising between mechanical straight line and the hand-made organic lines are very interesting.
Hand drawing patterns became an inspiration when I saw painted earthenware at the history museum. “Painted earthenware” is an unglazed pottery that was used in the Neolithic period in Mesopotamia, Egypt, India and so on.
The pattern was consisted mainly of combined geometric patterns and shapes imitating plants and animals.
And of course, all drawn by HAND.
I think this strangely attractive and beautiful pattern of ancient Painted Earthenware fits into the modern lifestyle.
It is weirdly heterogeneous, in a good way, and yet fits perfectly into the modern world.
Wood products exude a string feeling of familiarity.
By accepting the coarse organic and unbalanced appearance of the earthenware as a design conveys the feel that
it was made by human hands. However, industrial elements such as neon colors are also included to juxtapose
the wild organic flow of shapes and lines.
