designed by Sam Frith

A set of seven white hexagonal ceramic objects entitled Wa (meaning ‘ring’ in Japanese) have smooth but unpolished surfaces. Each can easily be held in the hand. They’re tactile. Seen side-on, they curve gradually towards a lip on one of their edges. Or most do. There are two variations. The first variation swells one-sidedly, the second rises to a measured central hemisphere. With only one hemispherical section, it seems natural to place the remaining six tiles around it. A crown of geometric petals is formed and reveals a ring, indented across the surfaces. Neither the structure nor the ring take precedence. This is the first ripple.
