Tom Sachs – Chawan

An archive of objects made specifically to show their history.

“Sachs has not simply imitated Asian techniques but he has applied his own signature bricolage methods to the art of porcelain, while utilizing the traditional format of hand-shaping objects, rather than wheel throwing. Sachs says, “When you look at iPhones, there’s no evidence of them being constructed by a human being. There are no seams. They appear to be completely robot made. As an artist, I find it difficult to produce something of this quality by hand with the same intent and appeal. Yet the advantage the artist has over industry is his ability to proudly leave his fingerprints for eternity.”
