What exquisite tiny stone vessels - I find these so beautiful. I've attempted carving pebbles myself and know how hard and unyielding they can be - yet here they look effortlessly worked and shaped - really barely altered in what seems such a natural transformation.
Mitsuru Koga is an artist who emulates nature. Working with rocks, he becomes the abrasive sea, or the passage of time with his neat shaping. Sea Stone (2008) is a collection of tiny vases, carved and polished from collected pebbles. The artist found inspiration on a beach in Chigasaki, Japan, where he was born. "As the way the waves abrade stones, I scrape them with careful attention."
