Description:
Delicate leaves made by Japanese artist, Mitsuru Koga, from copper wire found inside an electrical cable cord. Koga untangles the wires, then twists them into the shape of a leaf. Each leaf is held inside a wooden frame with an acrylic cover, and signed by the artist.

The leaf you select in the dropdown is the leaf you will receive. Each leaf is one-of-a-kind and hand-done.

History:
Misturu Koga (b. 1980), based in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan, Koga has the ability to infuse life into seemingly mundane materials, and transforms them into objects of art. These transformations are Koga’s commitment to exploring the delicate relationship between man and object, man and nature. His recent studio visit can be found here.
