Soul House is inspired by Hiro’s nostalgic longing and memories of her childhood in rural Japan, particularly connecting her to walks with her grandmother and her sense of the spirit of nature intertwining with village life. This stoneware sculpture on a wooden plinth is hand-built with intricate textural details of vines, animals and birds enveloped in glaze.
About this maker
Hiro was born in Fukushima, Japan. Due to her father’s work commitments, Hiro had a peripatetic childhood. The constants in her life were her grandmother and being close to nature. However, she was dismayed later on to find that the traditional old buildings from her childhood walks with her grandmother had been knocked down. Driven by sadness and nostalgia at the loss of her childhood environment/world in Japan, Hiro creates a link between the present and the past from her memories and imagination.
