Ryosuke Yazaki’s newest collection, Mikakiuchi, which can be translated in English as “courtyard of the shrine” or more loosely, “sculpture and space.”

The new pieces, presented in Ichii, Sequoia and Hinoki woods, as well as terracotta, embody a variety of forms from more traditional looking sculptural monoliths to sinuous and amoebic-seeming cryptograms.

Despite their collective impact, each of the one-of-a-kind pieces - regardless of their vivid colors, which range from a bright putty-like blue to a golden yellow - packs a singular emotional resonance, a leitmotif that evokes the human experience and its visceral complexity.
