아리나가 코타 Kota Arinaga

STATEMENT



나의 작업은 일본의 아름다움에 기반을 두고, 특히 칠기와 섬유에서 영감을 많이 받았다.

나의 최근 시리즈작 “Gaze”는 그물처럼 짜여진 “라 (羅)”와 비단인 “사 (紗)”을 떠오르게 만든다. 작품들은 내가 5년 전 처음?시작하고 그 후 계속해서?발전시키고 있는?베니스 유리 등세공 기법 (Reticello)으로 만들어 졌다.

나는 오브제나 주문제작 생활용기를 수공으로 만들어낸다.

My work is based on Japanese beauty, mainly inspired by Japanese lacquer ware and fabric.

My recent series of work, “Gaze”, is reminiscent of Japanese fabric “Ra (羅)”and “Sha (紗)”. The works are made with Venetian cane technique (Reticello), with which I have started working more than five years ago, and have been refining ever since.

I create handmade glassware, both as art objects and custom-made daily vessels.
