This vase looks like a milky way in the night sky or a deep lake. If dark blue background seems like the night sky, while bright sky blue dots seems like stars scattered over the night sky. If dark blue is deep in the water, the bright sky blue looks like the sun shining into the water. Both the view that looks up from the water and the view that looks up to the night sky evokes the abyss in the mind. Looking at this vase, I hope that we can look back on the memories and continue conversation with our inner selves.

At this moment, have a calm and deep conversation with your inner self. What kind of feelings do you have now? What is your inner self talking about?
