Grafted: Plants by Kohei Oda | Pots by Adam Silverman

Info

Hardcover
160 pages, 8 x 10 inches
Published by August Editions, 2015

Words

Kohei Oda, the owner of the Qusamura plant shop in Hiroshima, and the LA-based potter, Adam Silverman, have now presented two installations of their collaborative art project, A Tale of Plant & Pot. The parameters were quite simple: Oda created 100 grafted cactuses that meld two distinct specimens which come to resemble far-off alien lifeforms, and Silverman produced the slightly more restrained but still entirely unique and complementary receptacles they dwell in. A book, aptly titled Grafted, has been put together to chronicle these events and does so beautifully, with all of the plants and pots being photographed by Shuji Yoshida and Joshua White to form an interesting document of an equally fascinating cross-cultural collaboration.

OEN recently published an interview with Adam Silverman on their website. His work is especially beautiful, using a mix of colour and texture with more traditional shapes to create a cohesive and collectable body of work. He also has a Rizzoli monograph coming out towards the end of September, with events planned at Heath Ceramics to celebrate its launch.

A small selection of ceramics by Adam Silverman, including cups, plates and small bowls. The interesting colors and textures look great on these pieces. The small plate size would be nice for holding change, or even just having on display.
