The edge of "tree" who connected two people who want to art since childhood
Hira and Urma in Uruma City, Okinawa Prefecture are woodworking products that are named in combination of two initials of Naomi Heianyama and Miki Yonezu. The appearance of wooden furniture and accessories created by combining the two people is cute and beautiful, and you can always keep it nearby.
When I was a child, Mr. Yonesu from Okinawa liked the image of what kind of interior of the room was turned around the interior magazine at home, so I came to want to make furniture on my own someday. 。 Before graduating from graduate school, I learned product design and pottery, and after graduating, I worked as a carpenter at a renovation company, gaining experience of manufacturing from various angles. Among them, the strong consciousness of making wooden furniture, which I was interested in since childhood, grew.
Heianyama from Tokyo wants to learn art that he was good at since elementary school. After being fascinated by the prints I met in junior high school, I learned from the sculpture department of the arts high school and refined the expression using wood. After that, he went to the art university in Okinawa, where he has his paternal relatives, and majored in sculptures, and once he has worked for a company, he began to have the desire to "make wooden items that everyone can use."
In order to find a handicraft using wood, the two chosen as a study house was a woodworking training center in Okinawa Prefecture. The two, who were front and rear seats in the classroom, have a common experience in learning art in a wide range of art, and are able to confront each other's works frankly.
I felt that if we did it together, we should be able to make something really good without being alone (Yonezu). Regardless of whether you start based on either idea, in addition to acquiring the same woodworking technology at the training center, you can support it with each special skill, so the biggest work created by two people is the biggest work. I think it is an strength.
The unexpected "Kawaii!" ]
We want to create a painted work, which is rare in Okinawan woodwork, and a wooden series that incorporates the edge of the enamel, such as Okinawa -like Yachimun, will be born.
"Yachimun and the enamel are containers and tools that have long history and have been loved by people, but if the material is made of" wood "instead of pottery or enamel, you will be surprised. I was convinced that it would definitely be cute (Mr. Heianyama) "
An exquisite color that makes use of the natural wood grain, despite the clear red, blue and yellow border that is very enamel. He seems to have struggled to find the paint as expected, which can enhance the colors and grain. That's why, when the customer looks at the vessel, he looks at the pleasure, and he shouts, "I did it !!" in my heart.
The idea of "surprising humor" is that when you are shopping or reading a magazine, "What happens if you replace it with a tree? It is said that it is born from thinking.
I want to accompany my life as a vessel that I want to love unintentionally
The two aiming for them is "Product to Complete" where you can feel the attachment and want to use it for a long time. For that purpose, it is indispensable to care for everyday ease of use.
"If you use wood, it is lighter and easier to hold than pottery, but we will pursue the ease of use, such as increasing the shape of the bottom so that the bowl does not turn upside down because it is not weighted (Yonosu). Mr. Miss)"
The wooden wood uses Okinawan cosunni, sendan, and tabunoki, which have beautiful wood grain, and change the wood grain by changing the wood used in the same design vessel to increase the variations and enjoy the choice.
"I want you to love the softness of the unique wood, which is different from pottery and lacquer, so please touch the vessel skin a lot (Mr. Yonesu).
The square gears with such a lovely presence that you want to take out and touch from the cupboard unintentionally. Please experience the changes unique to trees, which will deepen the colors as you use them.
