Hitomi Hosono's Coloured Porcelain Sculptures

Today I was introduced to Hitomi Hosono's incredible carved porcelain sculptures on Carole Epp's blog Musing About Mud. Hitomi use gold leaf on the interior of some of her vessels. Anyone who has used gold leaf knows that it takes a lot of practice and persistence to do a good job. 

This piece reminds me of hoar frost. It's been extremely cold here in Saskatoon (the magical -39 C where it meets -39F) so seeing images of work inspired by coral and tropical flowers is just what I wanted to see. 

Hitomi and I share a fascination for testing though I'm sure she is more organized that I am about keeping records.
