Mitsuru Koga Copper Wire Leaf #3, 2023
Intricately woven copper wire leaves by Japanese artist, Mitsuru Koga, made from thin wiring found inside electrical cable cord. Koga untangles the wires one by one, then re-twists them into the shape of a leaf he has directly observed in nature. Each leaf is held inside a wooden frame with an acrylic cover, and signed by the artist.
Every leaf is one-of-a-kind and hand-done.
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.
