ARTIST BIOGRAHY
Tohru Matsuzaki
Using chisels and planes he carves the basic forms for his work from valuable blocks of solid zelkova or chestnut wood, finishing them in thick coatings of Japanese urushi lacquer. He creates forms that appear simple but are highly refined, the vermillion red lacquer evoking images of the Jomon period (ca 11000 BC - ca 300 BC). These unique works can be said to embody the essence of the Japanese 'mingei' folk craft movement.
