Coat the cloth with water-melting clay.
Apply over and over again. Bake it at 1200°C.
The clay becomes ceramic and the cloth burns down to ash.
The result is a cloth-shaped ceramic sculpture.

Cloth is a substance that easily carries people’s thoughts and memories, and clothing is a prime example.
There is a nostalgic smell and temperature in the gap between the fibers.
Replacing the cloth with a durable ceramic is a process of trapping the memories that reside in it so that it is not scattered.

Also announced a work in collaboration with fashion designer Motohiro Tanji.
