Osamu Harihara Driftwood Birds 2022

Regular price $300 Unit price  per 

Description:
Tokyo-based driftwood bird artist Osamu Harihara honors the natural wooden forms he finds on the beach by assembling them into birds, each with its own movement and shape. Harihara typically uses 2 to 3 pieces of driftwood, joining them together to form his driftwood birds. Understanding the ocean's currents, Osamu believes the driftwood he collects in Tokyo originate from the west coast of the United States.  When Osamu assembles each driftwood bird and sends them to California, the driftwood returns home as birds after journeying to Japan.
