Herzl is an open-ended collection of ceramic products which includes boxes, vases, candelabras and bowls. Herzl project started in a shopping journey of cheap, 'made in china' toys in Herzl St, in south Tel Aviv. Out of mass piles of toys, Studio Kahn picked their stars that will take part in their Herzl game. Studio Kahn prepared the plaster forms for all of their toys, and started to give them their new life as high, glorious, bone china items. The products are created in an endless game in which toy parts are put together, and are chosen to enter the collection according to criteria of form and usage.
Comprised of wood and quartz crystal, this organic light sculpture uses sustainably sourced wood from a reserve stock of aged Teak wood. Weathered for decades by the sun, wind, and rain, the wood is then hand shaped, sanded, burnt and finished into a vessel for holding LED lighting and using quartz crystals as a natural diffuser. 100% natural unaltered quartz crystals are used in each sculpture and are approximately 280 million years old. A variety of wood finishing techniques are used including the Shou Sugi Ban method of using fire for preservation and contrasting color.
In their works, animals are deliberately imposed a burden. They are strange in shape and lovely in action, carrying a burden while still striding forward. In order to better render the color of the work, they used Chinese porcelain clay as clay material, and Lacu was used as a means of calcination. At the same time, the hand-kneaded work and Raku have visualized beauty and brought enjoyment to people.
Metamorphosing between visible and invisible, the Spirit of God is manifested in a variety of forms, as the blazing “fire” represents the true form of the visual description of Holy Spirit. It is not only a reflection of God’s absolute holiness and righteousness, but also a special token for God’s covenant with his children. It is symbolic of the glory of God’s judgment too holy to be beheld, while shedding light on the fact that only after going through the trial by fire could people aspire to be worthy of the crown of life.
This is a temporary Japanese tearoom exhibited in Echigo-tsumari Art Triennale 2018 and has a nested structure with two-tatami space embedded in ten foot square. In this exhibition, architects were asked to respond to the theme of how to overcome the concept of homogeneous space that was dominant in the 20th century. The skeleton was designed using the random pattern which was called Voronoi Division to distort homogeneous space. And it was proposed that the architecture with a large number of holes what could be opened and closed as needed to communicate with the outside like a living thing.
The sculpture Entangled Hands is part of the Slicing series started in 2014. The aim was to fuse digital and traditional techniques to produce innovative works of art. The sculpture forms a symbol of love. It is the Unification of two beings merging into one another. They seem to perform a sensual dance, its beat given through the steps of the sliced forms. The elongated fingers and the fused base form a long winding movement so the sculpture´s energy is kept within the inherent triangle of the silhouette.
