Hirotoshi Itoh's amusing stone sculptures are a direct outgrowth of his family's Stonemasons business. The Tokyo artist's early exposure to rock carvings resonated with his creative mindset, prompting him to further pursue the skillful niche.

Itoh's collection is quite humorous and certainly unlikely. He portrays images of makeup cases, childhood apparel, paper bags and dripping slabs of butter through the grey boulders. Though these pieces are quite abstract, his exceptional detailing makes the subjects of his work clear.

These literally rock hard items are ideal for the purposes of decor. The unusual forms will at base spark conversation on Itoh's portfolio and history and on the modern application of sculpting to current fine art ventures.
