Hikari Yamaguchi's unusual vase objects consist of curved bodies that are accompanied by body-high, wing-like side parts. The surface decoration continuously covers the body and side parts, reducing the three-dimensional effect of the vase. The objects thus alternate between three-dimensionality and flatness in a most interesting way. Hikari Yamaguchi's focus is on the random colour reaction between metals, between copper plates and enamel. She uses 0.3 mm thin copper plates as canvas and paints them in enamel with compositions of lines and dots, following her intuition. The vases are fired several times. With her colourful works, Hikari Yamaguchi wants to emphasize the importance of the senses and intuition, which are increasingly being neglected compared to the assessment of technology. She would like to remind of the immediacy of sensory impressions, of the meaning of feelings and experiences.
