One-of-a-kind sculptural pots by Miwa Neishi. Made in Columbus, Ohio; New York City; and Japan. Able to hold water for fresh flowers and clippings.
The Japanese-born, New York- and Ohio-based artist positions her practice within a legacy of Japanese American artists who have sought to create work that reflects their lives, weaving together roots in prehistoric and classical Japan, modern craft traditions, and abstraction.
Each sculpture is hand-built using a variety of wild clays, with forms drawn from these references and the artist’s childhood, specifically the rigorous practicing of Japanese calligraphy letters (moji) and Dotoku morality lessons.
