Living National Treasure Yukie Osumi

On tankin (hammered) vessels and by applying the traditional techniques of chasing, mainly nunome-zogan (textile imprint inlay), OSUMI captures the feelings of nature with motifs of formless flowing subjects such as waves, streams, clouds, or winds. She creates vessels and utensils used in traditional culture such as flower vases, tea and calligraphy utensils; she is also aware of formations that harmonize with contemporary living space.
