MORPH RING / 3d print

This design morphs by twisting a Kumiko pattern around a finger.

The impression it gives off is the shape of an obi sash used with Japanese kimonos.

 

"Kumiko" is a craft that has been refined over many years since ancient times in Japan. An algorithm has been used to design this geometrical pattern unique to Japan, and a top of the line 3D printer and conventional casting techniques have been combined to manufacture these rings.

 

Kumiko patterns contain prayers and meanings.

Triangles signify charms against evil spirits, and an Asanoha pattern signifies healthy growth.

These have been earnestly designed so they can also be worn as talismans.
