Artworks with a Pure and Modern Aura
Woodwork artist Kenji Suda was born to a family of woodworkers since his grandfather's generation. He himself became a woodwork artist, and in 2010, he received the Medal with Purple Ribbon, a medal granted to meritorious people in the art field. In 2014, he was designated as Living National Treasure for "Woodwork". Among various woodwork techniques, Suda creates exquisite pieces using the wood joinery technique, which is joining wood pieces without using any nails or other metal hardware. Not only does it look beautiful on the outside, but the structure and the inside is also beautiful to detail including the metal fittings that he makes himself. Just like his motto when making his artwork, to "be graceful and elegant", his artwork as a total is overflowing with grace and dignity. His artwork has been added to the collections of the British Museum in the UK and famous art museums in Japan.
