Sand Vases by Yukihiro Kaneuchi

View all 10 Photos

Japanese designer Yukihiro Kaneuchi was inspired by traditional children’s game called bou-taoshi, it consists of several players making a small dune and placing a branch in the center, as each person takes turn removing the substance the one who causes the branch to fall loses. It was also a common sight around Japanese temples, the conic shape represents where God first came in the mythological age. Considered to be an object of divine spirit the arrangement is also used ceremoniously. Kaneuchi sculpted vases using a mixture of crystals, renewable cork and local sand, all bounded using waterproof resin. These pieces are elegantly shaped and the result of typologies combined with Japanese tradition.
