Japanese metal artist Taiichiro Yoshida creates chimerical sculptures of birds and other animals using flowers and feathers made of copper, bronze, or silver. Yoshida forges his creatures’ exquisite blooms and plumes by hand using traditional hot metalworking techniques that date back to sometime between the 2nd and 3rd century BC. We’re especially covetous of the pieces in which Yoshida incorporates the animal’s actual skull and other bones.
