Flowery Animals Hot-Metal Sculptures by Taiichiro Yoshida

Tokyo-based sculptor Taiichiro Yoshida makes sculptures from the ancestral technique of hot metal. Often, he represents animals such as birds, rabbits, doves and snow monkeys. What composes his animals, and makes his work beautiful, is that the metal is turned into little flowers and other elements to shape the animal. From copper and silver, he carves the feather of each bird, creating a link between his materials and nature.
