Kouichi Uchida Kouhei Oda

Cactus universe


"When I look at the cactus that Oda only wears, I get an image of the vessel I want to make. Everything is really unique and interesting."

It is the unique cacti that made the potter Koichi Uchida groan. If you look closely, you will find that there is a wide variety of microcosmos.

For some reason, the pristine world seems to be seen in the strange plant appearance that resembles the desolate landscape.

The plants lined up here are not normal growth processes, but have evolved uniquely due to special circumstances.

This time, with this 0 as a vessel, cactus bonsai that is not a microcosm of various sizes envisioned by Kouichi Uchida and Kouhei Oda are lined up.

We hope you enjoy the collaboration between two strange artists and cacti.

Kouhei Oda

Botanical shop "Mura-Qusamura" owner / Born in Hiroshima in 1976. When I was in my twenties, I was impressed by how a flower artist worked on the space production of a select shop in Paris, where I was traveling. After returning to Japan, after training, he opened a flower shop in Hiroshima. While exploring the possibilities of plants, when I delivered them to a global art collector, I was shocked to see the damaged plants and say, "The fighting plants are beautiful." Since then,   "has a nice face" Based on the selection of plants, he has been active as a plant shop pursuing unique beauty.
