CEO Olivia here today to share the wooftastic work of Japanese Artist Taiichiro Yoshida who creates pawtacular animal sculptures shaped from flowers made of colored bronze, copper & silver. They are simply wagnificent.
Decorative metalworking has a long history in Japan. Yoshida follows century old traditions in his hot-metal treated sculptures of flower-encrusted animals. His metal carving handiwork is pawfected by his color techniques, pawduced by super-cooling the heated metal at pawcise stages which he views to be one of the most impawtant aspects of his art. There are 4 feature colors in his pieces: white, pink, pinkish brown, & copper patina. He has said the work can be difficult & tedious to pawduce, but it earned him the 2015 Taro Okamoto Contemporary Award.
Let’s take a sniff.
Have a pawsome weekend. Remember to be gnawsome, be kind & stay safe.
CEO Olivia, Dot & Jerry Underfoot 🐾💜🐾
