Household fixtures become richer with ”kumiko” craft and expression of the wood
Koji Shimano of Shimano Woodwork Studio is a ”kumiko” craft artisan who makes ornamental fixtures such as shoji screens and transoms.
”How many colors are you able to express?”
When looking at the shoji screen with a gourd on it, Nakata commented, ”It’s interesting to see how the designs overlap when the screens are opened.”
But when the light was turned off, the painting of a gourd appeared faintly.
Relaying the beauty of detailed ”kumiko” art
After looking at the artwork, we went to the studio for a tour.
