I am a White Hanging Sculpture Vase. Live your life at your own pace, for in stillness there is space.
The rare ceramic artist has the ability to create a work that transcends established structures and fills the space it inhabits with new meaning. This sculptural vessel by ceramicist Masanobu Ando certainly breaks the mold of the common concept of "vase". Its abstract nature gives it a transformative presence. Adding flowers softens its edges and adds rustic warmth. Alone on the wall, it is stark and minimal, like a handle to an invisible door. When placed upon the table, it almost seems to have the ability to walk away on two legs. Even the shadow it casts morphs and shifts, tracing new shapes on the wall as the day passes. With this piece, Ando-san obscures the distinction between fine art and handcrafts, and reminds us of the form that can be held in empty space, and the empty space that can be held in form.
