We begin 2024 with healing wishes and a fundraiser for those affected by the New Year's Day earthquake on Japan's western coast. Particularly hard hit was the Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture. Located here is the city of Wajima, home to one of Japan's premier lacquer ware industries, Wajima-nuri. The reqion is also home to many other traditional crafts such as wood working, paper making, textile weaving and dyeing, and ceramics, in addition to a vibrant and important fishing & farming community. Many craftspeople were affected and numerous ateliers with histories of 100, 200, and 300+ years were destroyed.
From now, through March 1, 20% of the sales of all Teas and select Ceramic items will be donated directly to the City of Wajima, in Ishikawa Prefecture.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or information on how to donate directly.
Best wishes to all for a Healthy & Happy, Peaceful & Prosperous New Year of the Dragon.

Japanese Woodblock Prints span genres of Ukiyo-e, Pictures of the Floating World, to Shin Hanga, "New" Prints, to Sosaku Hanga, or Creative Prints. The first two involved collaborations among designer artists, carvers, printers, and publishers and were a true media-type of art form created by craft artisans. Sosaku Hanga brought about the merger of artisan and artist in a single person who created their own print works from design to carved block to printed image. Japanese prints have been appreciated world-wide for both the beauty of their artistic design and also the beauty of their artisan craftsmanship.
