Clouds reshelve Water flows free The wind dances Night dew lifts with the morning sun Everything goes round
Hara shares three design spirits: Masatoshi Izumi’s stonework, Tsukubai (water basin), is central: an upwelling. In the background is Hiromichi Iwashita’s trilogy, drawn only with a 6B pencil. Silent, yet color, sound, and smell are palpable. Finally, Akihiro Isogai’s glasswork from the Fountain series shares the space: an inner spring.
