Yohei Chimura, "From Days", 2012
Glass, various size

Yohei Chimura was born in Chiba, Japan in 1984.
Chimura works with heat, using basic craft techniques. He forms metal and glass into shapes. In this series "From Days", he selects moments from morning to night such as waking up, drinking water, thinking of someone at a distance and time alone. He captures the image of each moment in a shape. Everyday life seems to go on as scheduled and unchangeable, but in reality life is changing everyday and every moment. Chimura is saying that our usual days are precious and unpredictable and that we find happiness in small but precious quantities on these usual days. These shapes are from his usual days.
