At Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore (GINZA SIX 6F, Chuo-ku, Tokyo), Atelier matic / Sho Toyama will hold a fair of objects and vases using minerals and plants, "Stones, Plants and Human Hands." on August 6th ( It will be held from Saturday) to September 2nd (Friday).
Sho Sotoyama is a designer who develops his own activities under the name Ateliermatic. While working on space design such as design and exhibitions, I am engaged in creative activities of objects with nature as a motif.
In this fair, in addition to translucent objects in which plants and ores are confined in acrylic, solid objects in which minerals are put into resin and solidified, pieces of ore generated during the production of works are used. We will introduce works with natural motifs, such as design works, single vase imitating marble patterns and patterns on resin.
A number of works full of vitality created by fusing the “natural” possibilities of ore with the “artificial” possibilities of acrylic. Recommended novels and poetry books on the theme of nature, selected by Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore, are also available for this fair.

It is a work that puts ore into resin, hardens it, and then hollows it out. The design I intended at the time of creation and the expression of nature that was born by chance are crossed. It was born from Toyama's desire to turn the cross section, mass, and strength of a stone into a work of art.
