A short post to introduce our newest feature on Japanese woodworker Eiji Hagiwara. Born in Tokyo, Eiji Hagiwara now works out of his studio in Sayama, Saitama Prefecture.
Beautiful wooden objects by Fujii Works. Kenichi is the woodturner, he also carves the pieces by hand and constructs the vessels. Minako on the other hand applies the finishing touches.
A small selection of large wooden sculptures by American artist and craftsman Mark Lindquist, all of which are fairly abstract and harness the details in the wood.
I was taken aback by the simplicity in Australian designer and maker Benjamin Baldwin’s furniture from afar, up-close all the joints and fine details come through. It’s really something to behold.
Australian designer Jon Goulder was lucky enough to grow up in the furniture business, and is now a fourth generation craftsperson who is making these beautifully simplistic chairs.
Mr Hagiwara is inspired by the Shaker design philosophy, “to be necessary and useful”. He has channelled this in to his own woodwork and now we’re stocking a selection of his work.
