Yoshihiro SUDA studio Shokudo

I do not intend to concentrate merely on creating realisitically. I am interestesd in things that are created by and messed with the hand - so much so that the work becomes dirty from too much handling. The reason why I am attracted to things created by people, is probably because I am human. However, it is impossible to see only the things that are created in such a way. When one sees something, there is no way he can eliminate the space surrounding it. Then, I must consider the work to be more important than the space.

Making something that does not exist exist in a certain place, and making a time exist only in a certain situation.

That "thing" for me now, is a plant sculpted from wood. (Although this may sound a bit sentimental) a plant can only live by adapting itself to the environment when its seed is first planted in the ground somewhere. If the seed is dropped in myself, then it must acclimatize to the environment which is me. It just so happened that I was a person who sculpted wood. Therefore, within myself, the plant forms itself into a state that is sculpted wood.
