Japanese artist and designer Mariko Kusumoto (previously) designs gossamer coral and sea creatures from tender fibers like polyester, nylon, and cotton. Embedded with very small ripples or ethereal pockets, the standalone sculptures and wearables are translucent renditions of lifeforms, and their sensitive compositions correspond with the fragility of the subject issue. The Boston-based artist tends to cluster the personal parts into larger operates, developing sprawling reefs and numerous ecosystems brimming with color and texture.

Kusumoto is presently getting ready for a solo exhibition subsequent November at Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Seaside, Florida, and until eventually then, you can find a lot more of her ethereal functions on Instagram.
