I was recently introduced to the stunning, atmospheric works of Aoi Kotsuhiroi…I’ll let the images do the talking.
These creations are painstakingly constructed out of materials such as human hair, semi-precious stones, lacquer, and “pit-fired porcelain”.
Clearly, these correspond well with the resurgence of hair used as adornment, whether on clothes or accessories. These bring to mind Victorian mourning jewelry.
Please take a look at the website for more pieces, as well as some gorgeous photography.
