Biography:

In Mizuho Koizumi’s work there is a combination of man-made materials and plant life. Her design philosophy is to make a piece that joins these two elements so that they “appear to be growing together in harmony to recreate the silent beauty that plants possess”. It is important to her that the pieces blend into the room’s surroundings, being both sculptural as well as functional, a piece that is both practical and decorative. Mizuho’s vase is designed to utilize a minimal space to display flowers so that they are interchangeable depending on what you put in. Her work pays homage to beautiful flowers, such as the majestic rose, the fiery magnolia, the scent of lavender, the patriotic thistle and the weeping willow, which in essence touches the emotions of the viewer. Her main concept is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and her pieces encourage the arrangement of flowers using their own imagination and creativity.
