03: Peach "What is the name of the flower? Cherry blossom. Plum. Peach"
In March 2022, wooden key chain monitor project 03 was peach “Temari”.
(This blog contains the story of making a wooden keychain.
Thoughts on flowers and motifs,
I will write down the points of the design etc. )
What I think about peaches is
I often got the name wrong.
When I was little, when I went out by car or went on a trip,
My parents often mumbled the names of flowers.
"The dogwood is blooming."
“It’s already cosmos season.”
especially more than that
It's not like they're going to tell you,
"What happened to that?"
I was just thinking,
Now that I think about it, through the flowers,
I guess I was feeling the season.
The dogwoods are blooming → “Spring has finally arrived!”
The cosmos are blooming → “Summer is over and autumn is almost here.”
Nowadays, I just keep repeating the names of flowers.
Meanwhile, ``plum, peach, and cherry'' are now
Now I can see the difference
I often imitate my parents while driving.
If you find a tree that looks like that
I usually say, ``The cherry blossoms are blooming.''
“No, that’s a peach,” I often correct myself.
It had been.
Inside the car, I can only see for a moment
I still think I can tell the difference.
I still have no memories of seeing peaches in person, but
The scene where my parents were muttering the names of flowers while driving.
The momentary view of peaches from the window is a memory of peaches for me.
And about the peach design.
This time I used peach temari as a reference for the design.
I thought it would be difficult to express a sphere due to the difference in the density of the charred wood and the difference in depth on a flat surface.
What I think is important when designing a pattern is which elements to incorporate "regularity" and "irregular roughness."
I am conscious of that sense of balance and proportion.
A regular pattern alone would be too artificial.
Irregularities alone result in a picture rather than a pattern.
In this peach design, the jagged edges of the petals and the temari around them are regular.
The point of the peach design is that the ``stacks'' are irregular.
When irregularity is mixed in with regularity, it stands out.
And, personally, I think that's the key to having people think that I'm cute.
Place the peach pattern in the center of the circle,
It's shifted a little to the bottom right.
If you center it on the circle,
The mark becomes too strong,
I wanted to create the atmosphere of rolling temari,
I intentionally dropped it to the bottom left.
There is a sense of shift that cannot be expressed by those numbers.
This is the secret of this design!
