Coral Stardust

Elizabeth Y. Akamatsu - Nacogdoches, TX
Powder coated and stainless steel - 5.2’ x 5.8’ x 3.3’

Elizabeth Y. Akamatsu’s work is inspired by an appreciation of our natural world, with an aesthetic informed by her Japanese heritage. Coral Stardust reflects Akamatsu’s recent inspiration in the geological rosette formation known as "the desert rose” and the juxtaposition of material and form becomes a union of the opposing forces of fragility and strength Akamatsu’s "stardusts," like the desert rose, are at once strong and delicate.
