Three kinds of Craft-Works;

 (posted; Japanese culture page)

On 10th, after I offered carnations for my parents' grave and the altar in their empty house, I visited the exhibition at the gallery;

     Two artists happened to be there;
  • These lovely birds up there are chopstick rest♪

These are dish plates and I thought the black color brings out the flavor of the meal. 


Dyed Fabric*

                                          For the last, cyclamen from my old picture file;

  2. Nice ,and all look so special layout...

  3. Hello Miyako, the pottery is lovely. I like the birds and the turtles. And the scarves or wraps are pretty. A lovely exhibit, thanks for sharing your visit. Have a happy day and new week ahead!

  4. Such lovely craft works. I especially love pottery. Bird-shaped chopstick rests are so cute! They can be used just for decoration as well :-)
    Cyclamen is very pretty. I love how you designed the image with squares!
    Have a happy new week, Miyako san xoxo

  7. Oh my such lovely birds, so very wonderful. I'm going to visit both of my parent's grave this coming Saturday. Enjoy your week, it was great seeing your post today.

  8. Those birds are so cute! Interesting that they are used as a chopstick rest.

  9. Lovely pottery and woodwork!

  10. Miyako, very lovely and interesting artwork. I'd love to be there to look around and see them in person. Have a wonderful week, my friend. Hugs from Texas.

  11. An elegant and beautiful craft show. I love how everything is arranged so perfectly (the fabric for example, is perfectly placed; it is almost as beautiful to look at as a flower arrangement!). Of course the birds are my favorites -- they are so well made.

  12. Such incredible artwork from very gifted artists....

  13. Hi Miyako, glad to read from you again.

    Those crafts are genius. I live yhe bird chopsticks rest. They're made cute. The black dish however is something new to me. They look so unique. The woodworks are also impressive as well as the dyed fabrics.

  14. Belíssimos. Amei os trabalhos de arte.
    Tenha uma ótima semana.

  15. Beautiful artworks. I am always envious of people who can do any kind of arts and crafts, because I can't.

  16. Hi Miyako, What lovely creations. Love the chop stick holders. Lovely artworks by talented and gifted artists.
    Thank you for sharing my friend.
    Sending hugs your way. CM

  17. Such intricate designs of crafted wares. I was thinking the birds would look nice on a window sill until you said they were chopstick holders. :-)
    Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday Miyako.

  18. They have everything so nice displayed.
    I really like the scarfs
    Thank You for posting

  19. I think it would be rather fun to start a chopstick rest collection!! Thank you for a little treat of visiting you in Japan today!

  21. Hi Miyaco, the artwork is beautiful. Everything is so delicate. The chopstick holders are beautiful enough to be displayed as decoration.
