This week we received new work by craftsman Mutsumi Goto. His studio sits at the foothills of Mount Asama, and he uses these natural surroundings as inspiration for his woodwork.
I’ve been particularly impressed with Catherine Aitken and her devotion to the creative process, incorporating handmade elements in to a selection of mass-produced products.
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.
