Ethereal bowls created in the skeletons of other as well as maple leaves will be the most recent improvement to Japanese artist Kay Sekimachi’s remarkable portfolio. While she’s most renowned for her labor intensive loom works, these sylvan masterpieces are created by Sekimachi by adding Kozo Krylon, watercolor and paper coating giving them solid shape.
Perseverance has defined the life of Kay Sekimachi. Despite being born in 1926 in California, she was held in the Topaz Relocation Center in Delta, UT during the Second World War. Sekimachi graduated in 1949 from the California School of Arts and Crafts.
Sekimachi has written numerous publications on crafts, a number of which were coauthored together with her husband, Bob Stocksdale.
