Unbelievably Detailed Porcelain Bowls and Vases by Hitomi Hosono

Decorative porcelain vessels in immense detail by Hitomi Hosono strike differently than what we’re used to. Her meticulous approach results in a stunningly delicate porcelain vessel that everyone admires. Just by looking at it, it’s no wonder it takes her nearly a year and a half to finish one piece, although most of the time goes on drying which takes 10 to 12 months. Detailed blossoms, ferns, and stylized tree branches create aesthetics on Hosono’s bowls and vases that are a result of true love towards the art form. Inspired by technique of Josiah Wedgwood’s Jasperware (a type of stoneware covered in thin ceramic reliefs invented in the late 18th century) these Hosono’s layered botanical sculptures can be found on “A Natural Selection” website. A Natural Selection – brings together an international line-up of artists specializing in sculpture, ceramics or metalwork who interpret and express the natural world around them in different ways. Hosono’s inspiration for the botanical designs comes from her neighborhood walks through East London’s greenery. “It is my intention to transfer the leaf’s beauty and detail into my ceramic work, using it as my own language to weave new stories for objects,” Hosono shares.
