Underwater Sea Creature Sculptures by Noriko Kuresumi
Over the weekend at LIC Open Studios I stumbled upon the intriguing work of Noriko Kuresumi, a Japanese artist making anemone-looking sea creatures out of porcelain. In her artist statement she writes:
The sea is the origin of life.
All lives are connected and have been supporting each other.
I create my work by imagining the source of harmony and balance of the ocean.
While mind-numbingly detailed, I find myself in an odd, calming trance while gazing at her work. The fluidity and airiness that Kuresumi is able to achieve through porcelain is astonishing.
