Double-sided Umi are derived from the Chinese yin yang philosophy. Each vessel is a game of ceramic walls and empty space, which can be filled in many ways. Simple, irregular shapes decorated with brush strokes were created as a result of careful observation of the sea. There are six items in the series, whose function and use depends on the user or the situation.
