Mineo Mizuno

I've just stumbled upon some artwork from ceramic artist Mineo Mizuno. You ever see something you think is fantastic and matches what's swimming around in your brain so well that you get jealous that you didn't think of it? Happens to me a lot unfortunately, haha.
Mizuno makes pieces resembling large creek stones. Areas across the body of the pieces are indented, designating where moss will be planted to actually grow on the piece itself. I loooove moss and think these are beautiful.

You can view more on the Samuel Freeman gallery website. These works are on display there until March 21st, so if you are lucky enough to be in the Santa Monica California area, you might want to check it out. I am on the opposite side of the country, but am enjoying viewing more of Mineo Mizuno's work on his website. :)

I freaking love them too!!!! Amazing how he uses different varieties of moss to make slight patterns on some of them. ::drools::

... I WANT one. (you gonna make one for yourself?)

Ha, ha, I know that feeling... happens to me too. But hey, that doesn't stop you from doing what's in your head. It's okay to be inspired by someone and sometimes an idea is just 'out there' and you see lots of people pick up a certain vibe...

This piece is amazing! Love the different colours of the moss...

Hi tabmade - thanks for this post! I just spend quite some time on Mineo's website and am totally entranced. What a shame that I cannot see these works in person.

Btw - I like your blog!
Greetings, Petra
