A labour of love – a melding of traditional Japanese craftsmanship with a touch of linocut and exacting artistic flair to create a vibrant East-West fusion.
Our hand printed pieces incorporate a fusion of printing methodologies stemming from the beautiful techniques of Mokuhanga (Japanese woodblock printing) combined with a touch of linocut. Each organic design, as you will read below, is inspired by nature and created from its own unique printing process.
The adaptation and use of different printing techniques have cleverly allowed a reflective vibrancy whilst giving subtle and fully colourful transparency when backlit. This is what makes the pieces so exciting as well as aesthetically striking.
Our Shoji style frames and top framing are made from straight-grained American oak to give them a classic texture and strength. Each frame is cut and assembled by hand. This process can take anywhere from a day to two weeks to complete depending on the complexity and size. Our frames are individually designed to your exacting specification. Finishes are applied by hand and we may blend colour and finish to suit different palettes. Perhaps our need for la différence (and a slightly short attention span) helps us create something unique and bespoke.
