Japan-born ceramicist Hitomi Hosono creates intricate, fragile sculptures featuring overlapping leaves and flowers.
These delicate, handmade porcelain pieces are influenced by the botanicals, foliage and blooms of both Europe and Japan.
The refined pieces mainly feature in black or white, emphasising the fragile nature of both the subject matter and the material used.
“The subjects of my current porcelain work are shapes inspired by leaves and flowers,” explains Hitomi on her website. “I study botanical forms in the garden. I find myself drawn to the intricacy of plants, examining the veins of a leaf, how its edges are shaped, the layering of a flower’s petals. I look, I touch, I draw.”
