These contemporary art objects are usually hand made by the designer in a small workshop context. Many use traditional techniques such as carving, glassblowing, cabinetry, lacquering, meticulous hand assemblage. Others would also disassemble, burn or apply digital technologies in their making. Gallery FUMI emphasizes the satisfyingly tactile as well as the purely visual. Great significance is placed on the emotional as well as the practical value of craft.
