MOLD ALL and studio prepa glass works at The Hammer Museum Store It is held until Christmas.
MOLD ALL: This is the glassware line series, callded MOLD ALL Studio Prepa and Playmountain jointly started in 2007. The fundamental idea of this series is 'MOLDING ALL', making MOLD out of ready-made goods such as steel pipes, wood and ceramic blocks. Studio Prepa: Studio Prepa is a glass blowing studio run by Katsuhisa and Mizuho Hira. Each ware / piece is designed with their detail-oriented sensibility, and then made with solid glass blowing skills. Working in their own studio rather than in a generic factory allows them to refine the smallest of details that they envision for their glassware. Simplicity, functionality, and their commitment to bring out the natural temperament of the material are at the core of their work. Playmountain: There is the shop & gallery in Tokyo with modern design of 1940s-60s. Making original furniture and select in pottery , tableware , object , from all of the world with original view points as well.
