hitomi hosono

Oh. Where to begin? The flowers? The detail? The golden bowls hidden inside of those amazing ceramic orbs? GAH!!! These are the stunning pieces of Japanese-born, London based artist Hitomi Hosono. Here is her description of this beautiful work:

“The subjects of my current porcelain work are shapes inspired by leaves and flowers. I study botanical forms in the garden. I find myself drawn to the intricacy of plants, examining the veins of a leaf, how its edges are shaped, the layering of a flower’s petals. I look, I touch, I draw.”

I love her black & white work {obviously} but she is currently creating a new, colorful series… pop over to designboom to have a look at those gorgeous pieces.

    These are truly breathtaking! Thinking about the complexities.. The second piece pictured reminded me of Adelaide Alsop Robineau’s Scarab Vase. Gorgeous!
