France-based Japanese artist Kaori Kurihara creates fantastical ceramic sculptures of imagined exotic fruits, blending aspects and parts of real fruits and flowers.
I am inspired by the plant world by paying particular attention to shapes and their geometric repetition. Every element of nature seems to repeat itself but in fact there is an infinite diversity of it. Then I have a deep desire to make concrete the fruits represented in my mind and to be able to contemplate them through my own eyes. It is in this idea that I try to create pieces that are both realistic and dreamlike.Kaori Kurihara
