The surface of this porcelain sculpture is elaborately decorated with a multitude of porcelain sprigs. These are painstakingly applied by hand to the form created on a potter’s wheel. Each sprig is individually moulded, carved and finished with fine brushes to ensure a highly detailed finish. Nature is an essential part of Hitomi Hosono's life; the artist takes great interest in the minute details of plants and utilises these elements in her work.
