(jana zielinski) Nail scissors, pincers, lunch boxes, bottles, and other objects of everyday use represent samples from an original exhibition of anonymous design entitled the Creation of Centennial Values, which can be currently seen in the Vessel Gallery in London.
Stylish, beautiful, and useful – these adjectives give a true picture of objects selected for the purposes of this exhibition. They have one, I mean two, things in common. They come from Japan and they are supposed to outlast the ages. Most of them were made in small-lot production or by hand by the craftsmen themselves. They are not determined for mass consumption, but rather for connoisseurs only. They were all made in the Niigata prefecture on Honshu Island. Who could resist such a simple and modest story? This may be a nice Christmas present. For more information, see: www.vesselgallery.com.
