Tomoko Tokuda
In 2005 at Milan, I met old watches casually packed into the box covered with dust in the antique market. There was a special shine in the old watches and i was wondering if these can not be used again by any means. Old things have a particular indefinable colors, warped shape and mysterious feeling. They have their own stories like human-being. I wanted to apply new light to a thing that was not able to be used by becoming old, a thing that is broken,and the thing that has been forgotten again. And this was the main motivation to produce unique pieces of Tomoko Tokuda. Going to the antique markets in various places, i choose various parts and they are combined by the hand work. Making the thing from a warm hand spending time gives birth to true value and beauty.
