What a beautiful idea…Eighty and appreciated. A life time of art and craft summed up in a single statement of value.
Like being knighted in Briton, but somehow more direct.
You are a treasure.
In the case of Ryozo Kawakita, the slow solitary work of a wood turner. An oversimplification at best. A sensitive artist working in wood, lacquer and gold leaf.
See photos: poetry by way of hands.
Working with his son Hirohiko, Mr. Kawakita is lithe, agile, glowing, …. still in his prime.
