Grafted: Plants by Kohei Oda / Pots by Adam Silverman

This item is not currently available
In 2014, the designer Tamotsu Yagi and his daughter the gallerist Ritsuko Yagi, introduced two artists they each knew separately: Adam Silverman, an LA-based ceramicist, and Kohei Oda, a Japanese plant sculptor. Documenting Silverman and Oda’s subsequent work together across two exhibitions, Grafted presents one hundred unique works that combine Oda’s grafted cacti with Silverman’s textural ceramic pots. As Glenn Adamson writes in the book’s introduction: their collaboration is not just about a hundred plants in a hundred pots; it gives further evidence that art at its best can move effortlessly across cultures, across media, and against expectation.

Graphed is edited and designed by Tamotsu Yagi, with photography by Shuji Yoshida and Joshua White.
