나는 현대미술을 도예로 접근하려 노력한다. 도예가로서 우리는 용기를 만든다. 나는 보이지 않는 것, 형태 또는 볼륨이 없는 것을 만든다. <가가야키>는 빛 또는 광선의 용기이다. 가가야키의 몸통을 투명 점토로 만든 후 LED 조명을 설치하여 안쪽으로부터 빛을 비추었다.
I am trying approach to contemporary art from ceramic art. We as a potter, make vessels. I am making vessels for invisible or things without shapes and volume. KAGAYAKI is vessel of lights or rays. I made KAGAYAKI body by translucent clay. I illuminated it with LED light from inside.
