I have been pursuing the work of Japanese and American Craftswomen for several years.
Fascinated by the viewpoints presented by their creative activities, I find beautiful the particularly deep involvement I see given to the work.The tradition of Craftsmen in Japan is extensive and has produced fine work, but it has also been based on a certain stoicism. In recent years this has gradually changed along with an increasing number of Japanese Craftswomen who create with great freedom of thought. Seeing not only the work of these Craftswomen, but also their processes, has given me a glimpse into their lives. I had anticipated feeling connected to their perspectives and their pursuit of beauty. I discovered not only did I appreciate the completed object but also the landscape surrounding it’s creation.
