Stone Sculptures by Hirotoshi Ito

Japan stone sculpture artist, Hirotoshi Ito creates unique structures with a sense of humor.


Ito collects his art supplies, various kinds of stones and rocks ranging from granite and marble, along the Azusa riverbank near his home.


Ito, who has been a stone mason for more than 30 years, said: “Many of the things I sculpt are used in everyday life but are often taken for granted. I wanted to fossilise them."


“My family business is masonry so it made sense to work in stone, which is rarely used in Japan but has a sense of charm."


“People who see my work think it is creepy but cool.”

With the addition of zippers, Ito has turned rock into anything but a solid substance.
