Kawa Vase by Luft Tanaka, Made to Order

About

This listing is for a Kawa Vase handcrafted by the designer (and Souda's Co-Owner), Luft Tanaka. Each vase made using a process that involves casting liquid porcelain into a mold that's made entirely of leather. This highly-unique casting method results in ceramics that capture the fluidity and the texture of the leather molds. The leather is able to be reused, but each time a new vase is cast into the mold, the shape comes out a little different. Process explanation: -Each vase starts off as a simple pen drawing. Once Luft determines the approximate forms, he starts sketching the vases in a 3D Modeling software until he is happy with the shape. -Using the 3D model as a guide, Luft creates a fabric pattern for each mold. -The pattern is laid out on high-quality, beautifully textured leather. Each piece of the mold is cut-out and sewn together. Once the sewing is complete, the molds (which at this point resemble inside-out handbags) are ready for casting. -Liquid porcelain is poured directly into each leather mold. Once dried, a seam ripper is used to delicately peal away the leather from the porcelain. -Each piece is fired in a kiln, a clear glaze is applied to the inside of the vases and they are fired a final time.
