Yuragi is a brand that makes fluffy and mysterious jellyfish.
I work independently as a freelancer and make each item by hand.
Jellyfish are graceful and beautiful, but they are poisonous and I can't easily touch them.
I was fascinated not only by their appearance, but also by their way of life and style, and I wanted to make jellyfish! This was the beginning of Yuragi. Based on the difficult image of "Delicate and transparent," I went to various specialty stores such as art supply stores and handicraft shops to look for materials.
Through repeated trial and error, I finally completed the jellyfish about two years after I started working on it.
It is said that jellyfish do not have brains, so they do not think. They don't swim like fish, they generally let themselves drift with the current, but they open and close their umbrellas and drift moderately.
They drift moderately with the waves, but they don't just float around all the time.
As I look at the jellyfish, I am reminded that this is something we need to do as well.
It's impossible to be like a jellyfish and not think at all. But I try to follow the jellyfish's example and make time to not think about anything.
I used to be the type of person who thought too much, but now I find that time without thinking is so comfortable that it has become an essential time for me. I used to be the type of person who tended to think a lot, but now I feel very comfortable not thinking, and it has become an indispensable time for me.
A little bit of fantasy in your daily life
The excitement of welcoming something new is irreplaceable.
A house and its interior is a place to live, and it is the most familiar and important "environment". It is like a mirror that reflects you. When my mind is in a bad state, my room is also in a bad state.
However, I value the opposite.
When I want to change myself, I change the decor of my room. If I'm in the mood for excitement, I'll create a room like that. Or imagine it and organize it first. That's all it takes for me to feel refreshed and positive.
What do you want and how do you want to organize it?
For me, lifestyle and interior design are things that I can build up while facing myself. I would like to enjoy them for a long time.
I would be very happy if Yuragi's jellyfish can bring you new excitement, healing, and a chance to communicate with others.
