Driftwood Bird by Osamu Harihara

Regular price $240 Unit price  per 

Tokyo-based driftwood bird artist, Osamu Harihara, has been making "Driftwood Birds" for the last 30 years using found driftwood off the shores of Tokyo.  Honoring the natural wooden forms he finds on the beach, Osamu typically uses 2 to 3 pieces of driftwood, and joins them together to form his precious driftwood birds.

Understanding there is a cyclical movement of the oceans, Osamu believes the driftwood he collects in Tokyo have actually drifted from the western coast of the United States.  When Osamu assembles each driftwood bird and sends them to California, he sees it as a completion of the life cycle of the driftwood - returning driftwood that journeyed to Japan, flying them in cargo, back home as birds.
