Kaku Tagawa - hand-dyed framed picture on linen fabric

Every picture dyed by Mr.Tagawa makes us realize that he was undoubtedly a great dyeing master. Beautiful sketching, brilliantly designed composition and fascinating coloring are evident in each picture. Though he died in 2000, during his last years he often came to see us and would talk about his favorite cheese and advise me on my pottery work. He was not only a fanatic about the necessity for beautiful crafts, but he was also a romantic who loved poetry. Since he was a Christian, he left some beautiful Gregorian chants in his works. He always asked us to uphold the MINGEI philosophy, which is the making of modest and useful wares that subtly display art and beauty while performing a necessary function.
