Koyama Akiko (小山暁子) Exhibition at Ono Gallery- 2 (小野画廊-II)

I spoke with the artist about her ceramics - many of which had the theme of being shaped like the human heart.  That's probably hard to imagine, but the effect was good the way it was done.

It was interesting, because before the shape was explained, I was looking at them and thinking... wordlessly thinking... feeling... that the shape was somehow familiar, so when it was explained, a proverbial light bulb went off over my head and I thought "Ah!  So *that's* what that shape is!  I knew it was familiar somehow!".

They must have been skillfully done, because the effect was a comfortable one without a noticeable question arraising in one's mind.

The exhibit was in the first floor gallery just inside the main doors to the Okuno Building.
