I think designer can propose valuable work with different charm from traditional techniques by reinterpreting them. Conventionally, traditional casting technique is used to make copies with same shape. Trace Centerpiece start by approaching it in a different perspectives. I think casting technique modifies property of original material and attracts people by showing what they cannot imagine. In this project, I did various experiments how to break limit of the process. Finally, I made a mold with clay which is easily tractable. Property of metal replaces trace of other material to make new image. It stimulates people’s curiosity of original material with visual contrast. Trace series starts from complete understanding of both characteristics of materials and making process based on various experiments. This is an accomplishment by cooperation of designer's intention and potential of material and process.
