“Sky Diving” Sculptures by Yamada Kensuke
If you’re feeling the heat today, a plunge into Yamada Kensuke’s charming ceramic sculptures might cool you down. Recently he was the Martin Shallenberger Artist-in-Residence at Nashville’s Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art. For a month he worked in their impressive ceramics studio and what emerged is truly buoyant.
The exhibit entitled “Diving Through Clouds” continues through October 16th. Everything has gone so swimmingly that Brian Downey, assistant curator at Cheekwood, decided to make a short film about the artist and his process. You can watch it below:
