Object of the day
Large Feather Leaves Bowl was made by the contemporary Japanese artist, Hosono Hitomi in 2013 and has been bought by the British Museum. Hosono took seven months to make it. She made 1000 porcelain leaves and dried the work for six months before she risked firing it. If any cracks had appeared on the surface during the drying period, she wouldn't have bothered. Can you imagine looking for cracks everyday for six months amidst all those leaves?
