A5's Ayaka Hara is an intensely talented artist caught up in the space between light and dark, positive and negative, almost yin and yang. And out of it all emerges brilliance. On one side she showcases pieces of jewelry created with thoughts of destruction, sickness, and natural disasters. You can get lost in the pieces if you look closely. On the other side is a table covered with flower petals and beautiful displays of things made with vibrantly colored dried flowers, like jewelry and greeting cards. The most intriguing of all the pieces are her dried flower vials. They come in a few different sizes and would be great for bringing some of that positive energy into any space.
You won’t want to miss Ayaka’s unusual creations. Find her at the market in Williamsburg this Saturday and Sunday.
