Steampunk Sculptures by Michihiro Matsuoka . Born in Japan, Matsouka finds inspiration from his childhood memories and deteriorated devices. Creating devices that fuse animals and fish with machinery, Matsouka uses stone clay for his work, but will incorporate other materials that seem suitable. The sculptures are meticulously finished with acrylic paint, which aids his desire to express the progression of time. Matsouka’s work has been featured in twenty-five exhibitions throughout Japan.
