One of the attractivenesses of ceramic or glass works is their fragility as structure, which fascinates us.

Nothing ever lasts. Broken objects can never be reproduced, eve n if they are restored perfectly.It transforms into a different object.Alt hough the appearance is restored as ever, it looks something wrong.

When I c onsider wh ere this strange atmosphere comes f rom, a thou ght came to me that its reason might be that a broken object should "take on evanescence."

Taking a different way from restoration, I have tried to make a new object with a new perspective of taking on evanescence.
