Reimagining Nature: Hitomi Hosono’s Memories In Porcelain
3 NOVEMBER – 15 DECEMBER 2017
Daiwa Foundation Japan House 13/14 Cornwall Terrace, Outer Circle (entrance facing Regent’s Park), London NW1 4QP
Combining memories of her mother’s garden in Gifu with inspiration found in the parks of London, the work of Hitomi Hosono demonstrates a meticulous study of botanical forms. Hosono makes use of hand-carved models and plaster moulds, to make press-moulded and hand-carved individual porcelain plant forms. Hundreds of these porcelain leaves and flowers are then applied to vase or bowl forms enveloping the object’s underlying shape to create an intensely intricate texture that captivates with its delicate beauty.
