Here are couple of striking images from my friend Hitomi, the mai-shoka (brush painter-dancer). You can contact her for any calligraphy artwork, public performance, logo design, maternity belly decoration and more. She is pure talent. Humble but fearless. And her eyes burn like amber!
Hi, Iacopo: Thank you for keeping me on your mailing list. Sincerely appreciate your generosity and love of Japan, and her culture. I’m a ceramic artist with a deep appreciation of wood, using Japanese kashigata, carved cherry molds in my work: http://www.mnartists.org/polonianovack Currently researching where my Japanese grandparents were born in Japan. Once I’ve sorted out details, planning to make a pilgrimage to their birthplaces. Your projects sound compelling and full of promise. Wishing you continued success. With kind regards, Polonia Odahara Novack Studio Odahara St. Paul, Minnesota, USA
