Imprint






Imprint is a collection of burnt rolling pins and pastry boards for dough shaping. Studying the Japanese technique "Yakisugi", I am interested in bringing charred wood figures into cooking wares where material beauty echo with human gestures and the object itself. The design takes up references from Mediterranean cuisine culture as pasta and gnocchi are of the essence, and the outcome adopts a way for imprinting the patterns on the dough — as if making the bark with pastry.

重新發掘日本的燒杉(焼き杉)工藝,Imprint 為系列桿麵棍和塑型板提案,結合烹飪過程當中桿平、搓揉麵團的手部動作,讓木材在深度炭化後更顯突出的紋理,完整翻轉木紋於麵皮之上。

早期常見於西日本的傳統房屋外牆和圍欄,燒杉這項古老的技法透過高溫焚燒木材表面,以提升其堅固性與年限。在烈火的灼燒下,杉木板表皮呈現焦裂的斷塊節理,又經刷洗、上油,逐漸浮現一種亮黑如漆的色澤以及立體紋路,展現出木料的純粹質地。

此次使用台灣原生的台灣杉(Taiwania),是台灣為屬名的唯一樹種,意義上彌足珍貴,再揉合地中海文化,兩處地理區域交會更契合著 Local Ware 之主題。
