Sea Stone Vases #1-5 (2020) by Mitsuru Koga

Regular price $380 Unit price  per 

Description:
Palm sized sea-stone vases by Japanese artist, Mitsuru Koga. Koga follows the natural shape of the stone when carving a natural opening and flattened base so the vase can stand upright. The finishing touch is a mixed media plant made from washi and metal to stand and sway delicately inside each vase. Each pieces comes in an original secure box, like jewelry. 

Variation:
The stone you select in the dropdown is the stone you will receive. Each stone and plant is one-of-a-kind and hand-done.

History:
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.
