Sashimono: Japanese Fine Boxes is an installation of contemporary fine wooden boxes by highly esteemed Japanese craftsman Suda Kenji. Sashimono is the Japanese word for the traditional woodworking techniques employed to create boxes and furniture and it also refers to the objects that are created. Suda Kenji says "The space within the box is a source of mystery, a box is capable of shutting off a section of space, and so to open the lid is to gaze into the world. I find myself fascinated by this concept of the box and produce many myself. While I give due consideration to the function of boxes as containers, that is not my only consideration when making them; I also focus on decoration, appearance and texture...." Suda Kenji teaches at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. His work is represented in leading Japanese public and private collections including that of the Imperial Family.
