Hitomi Hosono’s Plant-like Porcelain Sculptures

by Nick Pizana hiPosted on April 18, 2014
London-based sculptor Hitomi Hosono has a versatility that to her work that is hard to miss. Educated in both Japanese and European sculpting techniques, the forms of Hosono’s ceramic sculptures range from having zen-like simplicity to intricate detail. Despite the vast differences in her styles, there is a balance between them, as the styles mirror, yet contrast one another. Her most recent works are compact, plant-like forms look almost like they could be functional vessels, but Hosono makes them sculptural inside and out, with ornate plant-like details and gold-leafing on the insides of the works. Of her work, the artist writes: “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.”

Paintings by Sage Vaughn

Born in the American heartland to hippy, naturist parents, one of Sage Vaughn’s earliest memories is sketching animals at the local zoo alongside his father. In adulthood, as an acclaimed painter, he contrasts the natural world against melancholic backgrounds featuring the post-industrial landscape. “I’m interested in man’s wild side, and animals’ civilised aspects … where society and the wilderness overlap”, he says. A typical example is Sage’s pictures of garden birds with discreet tattoos reading for example, “Kill ‘em All" or "FTW". He has claimed to paint wearing infra-red night vision goggles, "as this is how most animals see the world."
