MOMENTO MMT35 / MMT50
by NAO TAMURA
There is a moment when a clinging bead of water becomes a droplet. The droplet reflects its surroundings while gathering light within. Momento freezes that moment of ephemeral beauty and turns it into a source of light. The elliptical shadow, folding over itself, captures the glassmaker’s spinning technique.
