History: 
When he was a child, Katsuyoshi Matsuzaki found a stone Buddha figure buried in the dirt. This moment became a source of inspiration for the Kyoto-based stone sculptor, who has been carving art pieces for gardens, homes and public spaces for more than twenty years with the goal of providing a sense of peace and calm through stationary objects. His work is a lesson in dedication, bringing with it an appreciation for the skill and patience it takes to create art from nature. Matsuzaki has been exhibited at 45RPM in New York and was selected for the permanent exhibition in the Tokyo International Airport.
