Japanese Artist Creates Incredible Stone Sculptures that appear to defy the Laws of Physics

In Hirotoshi Ito’s masterful hands, common rocks become strange, unsettling and humorous creations that will make you look twice.
Surprisingly, it all starts in a riverbed in Ito’s neighbourhood, where he picks up the small rocks he works with. Although most of us consider stone to be a cold, hard and unforgiving material, Ito says that he would like to show other its potential to express warmth and humour.

Most people regard rocks as being hard, un-malleable objects.
Ito hopes to convey their warmth and humour through his work.
He makes detailed modifications to the stone’s surface.
Transforming the stone into something new…
…and juxtaposing the raw, natural surface with new additions.
The final touch is often one more small thing – like a zipper or sardine can top.

Ito’s work is super imaginative and creative.
