As the coronavirus vortex continues, we are forced to make
unprecedented changes in the way we work, live, and distance ourselves from others, and we have more opportunities to reconsider our own ways of being and living.
“ichi” is a design that expresses the harmonious number “1” with the motif of “whole person”, which means “a person with a good balance of knowledge, emotions, and will”. It was born from the desire to be yourself by recognizing light and shadow, not being perfect, and achieving harmony.
Ping Kyle, who moved from Taiwan and now lives in Japan as a glass craftsman, is a design born out of her experience of facing herself and re-perceiving her own identity in a country with a different culture and sense of values. The idea is that wearing ichi will be an opportunity to maintain your own “harmony”.
Ping Kyle (26 years old) from Taiwan
After graduating from the Toyama Institute of Glass Art, she will join the staff of the atelier iriser from April 2022.
I went to Japan from Taiwan to study glass production. When I came to Japan and became a foreigner for the first time, I felt that I had to reassess my new identity in Japan when the coronavirus broke out. By spending time alone at home and listening to the voices of my own heart, I have regained my inner harmony and am striving as a glass artist.
