‘Ashi 足’ is the Japanese word for ‘leg’, the title of the work can be simply interpreted as ‘a plate with legs’. Handmade by the artist in Gifu, Japan exclusively for SYNONYM; item located in Nagoya, Japan. Along with Koukishin-Kun and Kyoumishin-Kun, a series of works Yajima created for the exhibition, Futamono ふたもの and Ashi no Aru Utsuwa 足のある器 were experiments attempted by the artist in exploring the extraordinariness of the mundane everyday life objects, with the same materials and similar techniques, resulting in a variety of different shapes and possibilities.
Due to monitor display differences, the actual colour of the work may vary slightly from what appears online.
