Golden Water-Like Ripples Cover This Brass Bench

 

Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka, has created a golden brass bench that looks like water ripples.

Recently exhibited at the Golden Pavilion Temple – Kinkaku-ji in Kyoto, and named the ‘Water Block’, it’s a new version of his original piece, that was made of glass. In the glass version, the water-ripple shape was formed when the glass solidified and the beautiful ripples of water surface became apparent.

 

This is his original design.

This bench named 'Water Block', is made from glass, and has been designed by Tokujin Yoshioka.


Now, Tokujin Yoshioa has created a version out of brass…

Here’s a glimpse of the bench was made. First the brass was melted in a 1100 degree furnace.

Using the same technique used to create traditional Buddha statues, the extremely hot liquid brass was then poured into a sand mold.

Once the liquid brass cools and hardens, it’s then removed from the sand mold and handed over to experienced craftsmen to polish it to a shimmering gold.
