Mono no aware is a phrase in Japanese that expresses the bittersweet realisation of everything in life is simply in passing.
design by Amanda Tong
MONO NO AWARE is collection of unique, one-of-a-kind objects made using local clays and colours generated by natural materials gathered over different seasons, e.g. carrot leaves from the artist's garden in summer, sakura leaves in autumn, and ginkgo leaves in winter.
The collection documents the four seasons, inviting nature to add colour and integrate itself. The results are always unpredictable and the natural dyes used will evolve with time and use. Today’s look might be different from yesterday’s - it’s a living body of work that encourages us to slow down, observe and appreciate different seasons of life.
