ANTIPODE – Salmon Set
Cutting salmon is a delicate ritual that people share over time. Antipode consists of three objects that ritualise this process. The main piece, a Tamahagane knife, consists of a long process of folding steel. This traditional, ancient technique, also called ‘jewel steel’, implies removing impurities by stretching and compressing the steel. This technique creates patterns on the blade and contrasts with the other objects. <via>
