Shibui is a Japanese word that refers to a particular aesthetic of simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty. Shibui objects appear to be simple overall, but they include subtle details, such as textures, that balance simplicity with complexity. This balance of simplicity and complexity ensures that one does not tire of a shibui object, but constantly finds new meanings and enriched beauty that cause its aesthetic value to grow over the years.

What I aim for is to capture the unseen, as many people have seen waves, but looking at these images, it is like they are rediscovering what a wave is, what it means, and how it at times can look like hand-blown glass. It should capture the imagination, and capture the soul of the viewer to bring significant meaning into their lives.
