Katsuyo Aoki's Ceramic Skulls

Japanese artist Katsuyo Aoki works in ceramics. I would call her style Neo-Rococo, but I made that up so don't quote me. Aoki describes her work as coming from historic styles that are "divine and vulgar." Either way, I find her sculpture elegant, delicate, and wild. I picture Aoki creating these works in a mad flurry of activity while recordings of Bach blare in the background. But, that's just my overactive imagination. What do you think?
