Note from Artist.
The concept of my work is natural and simple.
I would like to create environmentally friendly and long-lasting products using natural materials.
There is a sense of "useful beauty" in Japanese aesthetic sense. It has been a beauty that Japanese people have found in tools in their lives. The beauty of the aging that comes out every day as it is used. It is a heart that makes you feel that things that are old and decay are beautiful.
In this way, I want to make something that enhances beauty over many years.
I want my work to look like this "beauty of use".
And about simplicity.
I would like to make simple lines that look beautiful without making gorgeous decorations.
The design is simple because I want to make the best use of the characteristics of the material. It's simple, but I'll give it a little life so that I won't get tired of it.
These consciousnesses have something to do with "Wabi-Sabi" in Japan.
And it gives kindness and richness to life.
These are the goals of my work.
Thank you Kouji Hori
