YU is a collection of vases that highlights the beauty of the ordinary. The kind of beauty that is unnoticed or even considered unpleasant.
This project is based on the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi which defends the imperfection and defect in objects as a natural and obligatory mark. This aesthetic also acknowledges the fact that nothing lasts, that everything is constantly changing.
This vases are made by casting vegetables. Because of its nature, vegetables are constantly changing, but this ceramic vases freeze them on time making them unique pieces.
