Fukuko Katsuura, Independent craftswoman
The ancient arts of weaving and dyeing live on in the handwork of dedicated craftspeople such as Fukuko Katsuura. From a love of Japans textile arts came a dedication to mastering traditional weaving. From a life lived on and of the land, came experiments in coaxing color from plants gathered and grown. The Sound of Weaving at Ôzu features a selection of her work in silk, paper, and other fibers dyed and woven, work that at once exemplifies centuries-old technique and personal vision. A series of illustrative photographs of the creative process supplement the display.
