Taiichiro Yoshida’s Flowery Metal Sculptures

Taiichiro Yoshida’s metal sculptures are so meticulously crafted and impossibly delicate that one could be forgiven for thinking these contemporary designs are digital renderings.

However, Yoshida is an accomplished metalsmith who uses silver, bronze, and copper to form his metal sculptures such as leaves, flowers, and butterflies that cover the bodies of each mammal or bird in this contemporary art.

Every petal, leaf, and the wing in this modern art is hand-formed, with the coloration created by heating and cooling the metals at specific temperatures.

Tokyo-based sculptor Taiichiro Yoshida makes metal sculptures from the ancestral technique of hot metal. Often, in his art sculptures, he represents animals such as birds, rabbits, and monkeys.

What composes his animals, and makes his work poetical, is that his metal sculptures are turned into little flowers to shape the animal. From copper and silver, he carves the feather of each bird, creating a link between his materials and nature. A beautiful merge of art and design!
