Refined Silk: Kyoto Wave (Neriginu: Kyo No Nami), 2015, TSUBOI Asuka, picture taken by Carsten Bing
The good life for me is appreciating the imperfections in life and accepting that not everything that you do is going to be perfect. Refined Silk by TSUBOI Asuka I think represents this thought well. The sculpture is made out of beautiful patterns, but just like life, there are so many different patterns, so many different backgrounds. The pot itself is also not pure, it is crooked, contains edges, is not completely smooth, but it is still very pretty. This I think is something that we all can learn from, that life is made out of many different ways, many different backgrounds, but not matter how you twist and turn it, as long as you are satisfied with the final product, it will still turn out pretty.
