Asahi So is a Sydney-based artist working in ceramics and wire. Having initially trained and worked as a florist both in
Australia and overseas, he began to question the
impermanent and often throwaway nature of working with
fresh flowers and foliage, and gradually turned his
attention to creating work using more lasting media.
While he has shifted away from using fresh, living
materials, the natural world continues to be Asahi’s chief
inspiration. His principal themes being the exploration
of organic forms and textures as well as taking cue from the variety of high and low forms in Giorgio Morandi’s still life compositions.
