Title : Utsuwa A to Z

Concept :
Containers..... Vase, Bowl, Cup, Glass, Vessel, Bottle. These vessels can be described by the term '' Utsuwa = 器 '' in Japan.

This term is used to describe a Japanese sense of beauty. To describe something as Utsuwa is to say it includes simplicity, but also a sense of space and emptyness, where gentle organic imperfections are beautiful. However, included in this is thoughtfulness and visual sensitivity .
In this project I made 26 Utsuwas in total, from A to Z, from big to small.

In case of Japan, there is a concept 「詫・寂」in one of sence of beauties of Japan.

詫 means " it seems to be coarse" or " it seems to be simple".
寂 means  " it seems to have been deteriorated by the time passage". It is resemblance to the beauty of patina(green rust) in English.

During in this project, I wanted to express [wabi /sabi] with 26 utuwas.
How to make : I advance my project a clue to the word that was associated from initial A to Z of the alphabet.
