The kodama project.
Respect and love for the one-legged ones. Collective awareness. Comfort and solidity of sacred geometry.
Decay, graffiti, breakdown of tissue, transfer of energy.
1. spirits from Japanese folklore that inhabit trees.
My kodama are small wheel thrown and altered porcelain creatures that are installed in trees. Decorated with hand carved eyes and geometric patterns, they have been placed on Nantucket Island, on Fisher’s Island, in Maine, and in Iceland.
p.s. If you see a kodama, and are so inclined, please take a photo and share. Don't forget to tag @nellvanvorst and #kodamaproject.
