My first foray into working with clay.
A handmade leather shoe business in Upstate New York found itself in need of ideas for the scrap leather accumulated in his company's production line. I designed an adapatable bag that unites modern production processes like laser cutting and tradtional hand stiching.
A month long wanderlust filled with architecture, onsens, wood craft and a lot of ramen.
I spent my final year of college investigating the social mechanisms that help the living form attachments with others and envisioned a future of objects that are subtly attentive of the needs to feel safe and secure.
