Living Art Blends Ceramics and Horticulture


Inspired by his own landscape designs and a trip to his native Japan, Brooklyn-based artist and landscape designer Mineo Mizuno integrates ceramics and horticulture in Coexistence, an installation of living art forms.



Mizuno leverages his expertise in glazes to work with flattened ceramic spheres onto which he dots with holes and plants moss.


After the large pebble-like spheres enjoy a period of shade and mist, the moss grows into an organic outer skin, functioning a bit like a traditional ceramic glaze, yet still responsive like a plant to the effects of temperature and humidity.
