Really stunning book, this.
Grafted documents, through stunning photography, the groundbreaking collaboration between Adam Silverman, a renowned LA-based ceramicist, and Kohei Oda, an award-winning Japanese "plant sculptor." Through two exhibitions, Silverman and Oda worked together to produce one hundred unique works combining Oda's grafted cacti with Silverman's textural ceramic pots to produce one-of-a-kind, out of this world artworks that cross boundaries. Beautifully photographed by Shuji Yoshida and Joshua White and edited and designed by Tamotsu Yagi, Grafted is a testament to the power of merging two powerful visions. As Glenn Adamson writes in his introduction: "Their collaboration is not just about a hundred plants in a hundred pots; it is further evidence that art at its best can move effortlessly across cultures, across media, and against expectation."
