Hitomi Hosono - 'a mangrove bowl', 2014 ~ 18cm h x 26 cm She wanted to make pieces using the sprigging technique, but to move away from the traditional use of sprigs solely as ornament, and to attempt to work with ceramic sprigs in a new and sculptural way. After extensive experimentation she created two new ways to use the sprigging technique. One was to cover the entire surface of a shape with sprigs; the other was to construct a sculptural object solely out of many layers of sprigs.
