Kanna - Made

The artform of kanna, a Japanese craft working like an arboreal stethoscope that brings us closer in sense to our landsacape. With an understanding of the underlying unity of form and function objects are made that bring harmony to everyday life.  Working on a small scale with one piece being made after another, a high level of craftsmanship is required to make something that can move through the generations, improving with age. Furniture that is soft on the senses, has clear forms and is quietly expressive, with the voice of the tree uninterrupted, this is an alive and ever evolving process.
