Driftwood Bird by Osamu Harihara

Regular price $375 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 with unique movement and shape.  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 off the west 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 back home as birds.

Variation:
Each driftwood bird is one-of-a-kind.  Due to the natural material and handmade nature, there is imperfection and variation among all of the birds.  

History:
Tokyo-based driftwood bird artist, Osamu Harihara, has been making 'Driftwood Bird' sculptures for the last 40 years using found driftwood off the shores of Tokyo.
