UROKO

2022/ Exchange Study in TAMA Art University

Fashion Accessories/ Material Innovation

 

Designed in collaboration with Kana Endo (Oil Painting).

 

Uroko is a jewelry collection that focuses on extending the expression of Asian identity and heritage by exploring new potentials of ceramic material. Designed for the young generation as a new way to approach the traditional material - ceramics, along with Asian heritage such as traditional colors and patterns. Uroko uses 3d printing ceramic technology to give this conventional material a fresh and bold interpretation.

TRADITIONAL PATTERN + COLOR

I took inspiration from the traditional Japanese pattern, SHIPPOU and KIKKO, and transformed them from 2d to 3d with modular thinking to create this collection. The goal is to make the old stuff new again. What’s in Asian culture has been left behind, I want to bring back focus back to the traditional color and material, to make young generation feel cool about them to strengthen the bond.

The color red originates from the traditional Japanese mineral color “Shu”. The blue color is from Japanese “Gosu” which often appeared in porcelain underglaze.
