Sfera will showcase a new collection by collaboration with Akihisa Yamamoto and Keitaro Maki, Kyoto-based craftsmen succeeding special techniques for making sacred objects for Shinto shrines.
While craft techniques for everyday use objects have been developed for functionality and esthetics of each era in the long history, that for the religious objects have been succeeded without changing anything to keep their ritual meanings. Discover our new objects that are crafted by the techniques that can be called as the origin of Japanese crafts.
