The first topic of ‘ef’ is the French word ‘faire tour’ which means ‘Rotate’.
There are two main ways to make something by rotating with the center axis. One is to shape it by hand, which is used to make it into a material that can be molded smoothly, such as soil and glass. Another is to use tools to cut and shape, which is to use hard materials or to use sophisticated machining.
We want to create new values by collaborating with artisans who use these two methods under the theme of rotation.
