Takashi Ichikawa
Tools for “Enjoyment”

Oct 23, 2020 | Event 


Smoker that burns wood to smoke tara vine of mountain


I wanted for this exhibition to cultivate a spirit of “enjoyment”. I created these tools with this spirit in mind. I’m interested in playing with fire, with water, with plants. Playing is fun but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. A meal can be a feast if you take the time to prepare the ingredients. A cup of tea can be delicious if you prepare it slowly. A flower arrangement can be made by collecting the flowers at your feet. If you take the time and make the effort, more will come of it.

Why not take some time just to enjoy the time? Here is a distiller that collects the scented drops from plants. A smoker that burns wood to smoke food and drinks. A single-handed pot for roasting wildflowers and grains. A kneading bowl for mixing plant flour and water. A fireproof pot that makes a rattling sound. A lampshade that uses oil from plants for its light. These objects are burned and baked using wood. As I finish the vessels I imagine the ecru walls of the Ryugyu in Miyama, Kyoto, or the pure and bright white of the Cosmic Wonder in Tokyo.

Ryugu no Sarunashi

Oct 23, 2020 | COSMIC WONDER Free Press 


Lantern fruit in a small-handled pot by Takashi Ichikawa


The mountains that surround the Ryugu are rich with natural forests.

When I enter the mountains, I find a hardy kiwi vine clinging to a big tree.

Climb the tree, chew on the hardy kiwifruit, fill the basket and go back down the mountain.

Let’s give some to the monkey and still there’s a lot left.

The hardy kiwifruit is small, sweet and sour, and is said to be the oldest type of kiwi.

In the field around Ryugu, I spot so many lantern fruits. They seen to be a European variety.

I enjoy their mellow flavor and unique aroma. They have a soft and supple sweetness.

These autumn mountains and fields are like jewel boxes full of fruit.
