Yoshihiro Suda "Weeds"

Artist, Yoshihiro Suda, has received worldwide acclaim for his unique wood carving work. His craftsmanship is so refined that it is difficult to distinguish his art work from the real thing. His creations, whether it be a single flower or a common weed, are created in their actual life size form.
When his work is placed in a room among other objects, it seems to take immediate control of the surrounding space, bringing new life into the atmosphere.
His work projects a whole new reality to the observer. Uyeda Jewelers was founded during the Meiji era in 1884. The company is famous for its high-end jewelry originating from its decorative metalwork with swords, a craft that is unique to Japan. Yoshihiro Suda and the top craftsmen of this established jeweler collaborated to create “Weeds” made from pure solid gold.

Comment on gold "Weeds" by Yoshihiro Suda

It took over ten years to create the gold "Weeds". Through a process of repeated trial and error, it’s finally been brought to life.
Gold is known as the first metal ever used by man. From ancient times until now, the value and quality of gold have not changed. In this sense, I think gold is the only material that embodies the word "eternity". Although wood is my favorite material to work with, gold’s allure makes it my second favorite.
This ridiculous piece was created by using a wood carving of a common weed as a model, and molding it with solid gold.
