This time I want to share the work of Mineo Mizuno. A native to Japan, Mizuno now lives and works in the United States spending most of his time, and showing his work, in New York and California. Mizuno works mostly in ceramics and metal sometimes for the gallery and sometimes for exterior installations. The simplicity and beauty of his work echoes the meditative quietude of a Zen garden. His most recent work, Coexistance, which evolved out of previous work such as his Waterdrop sculptures, are created out of clay and living moss. Their shape is simple, but their peaceful beauty and ever changing nature that comes from living organisms makes for a dynamic piece. This harmonious version of "coexistence" offers hope for other symbiotic relationships.
