Drops draw the existance

design : Kanaé Tsukamoto

The “Drops draw the existence expresses” the smoothly melted concave. The motif is one of my experience. One day, I have got a shower and took cover under eaves. At that time, I saw water drops have made a natural soft holes on the ground. I have aimed to express soft shadow and shade made by concaves.
