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.

The works that will be on show at the Daiwa Foundation combine inspiration from nature in England along with memories from the artist’s home in Japan. Touching porcelain clay, Hosono’s imagination travels freely between Britain and Japan, conjuring up memories of the elegant curly petals of the Nadeshiko flower in her mother’s garden and of the gorgeous Wisteria climbing the walls of an English church.
