Sandblasting seems like a purely industrial skill, yet behind the technical jargon and equipment lies a very creative and profitable craft at heart. Propelling very fine bits of material at high pressure, sandblasting is a method of cleaning or etching a surface, In the hands of a skilled artisan, this same technique is used in various avenues -from removing loose paint and rust n car repair shops, to sculpting and etching patterns Into glasses and porcelains. Art here is amazingly versatile both practical and imaginative. Out of the severe conditions of sandblasting springs forth a sereneness and tranquility of each Daikanyama plate. reflective of the calm and peace endemic to the Japanese culture. Daikanyama Plate is a collaboration between Kihara, Supermama, and Underscore.
