Sei Yamazaki worked on two sheets of kawara for the exhibition. Clay before firing was given to each designer. With a theme of time axis carrying on the tradition, He decided to apply a natural shape which was formed with long period of time into his design.

Thus, this piece consists of two different techniques. He threw several stones picked up at a riverside of Tama River, again the clay to bring a natural shape into one volume. This piece consists of iwahada (rock surface) laminating with rough and sharp time, and mizuhada (watery surface) scooping gentle and kind rock surface which is grinded in water.

He made two different surface textures to be born in nature to coexhist in a single piece, and fired them in a Yasato kiln.
