[ About Masami Tokuda ]
His works draw a beauty of shadow — his dedication starts with working on woods, embracing their natural forms such as cuts and bends. Then carefully landscaping with a fine layer of Japanese traditional alchemies — sabi urushi laquer, ochre clay and plant dyes such as with indigo, which turn into complete modernity with his magic.
