‘Futa, ふた’ meaning ‘lid’ in Japanese and ‘mono もの’ is loosely translated into ‘thing’. 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 presentation, 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.
Customisation for the artwork is available.
