Hirotsune Tashima has designed a series of sculptures that mixes desert imagery with familiar beach themes. The sculptures are intended to be humorous and encourage people to live fully while reflecting the power of growth. The sculptures include three cacti depicting fish, food and fashion and life size figure swimming, jumping and diving into sand. Smaller sculptures of native animals such as javelina, birds, tortoise are spread around the larger sculptures, creating a “fun and exciting" atmosphere. The artwork will be installed in the food court area, grouped in a beach setting. Each piece is created in ceramic stoneware using traditional slab-building techniques.
