Mitsuru Koga

Aren’t these incredible?  Japanese artist Mitsuru Koga carves tiny beach stones that he has collected into vases and other charmingly small sculptures.  He says that “as in the way waves abrade stones I scrape stones with careful attention,” and that he is merely contributing to a natural process that began many thousands of years ago with the rocks’ initial formation.  As such, he questions what man’s position in nature is.  Can we accept that a pioneering pair of human hands is just another kind of natural force, like the ocean’s waves?  (all photos from misuru-koga.com)
