"Light and shadow. Transparency and density. Space itself as a vital force. Utter spareness. Repetition. Materials drawn from both nature and industry. An intellectual search manifested visually in the arts. Rigorous craftsmanship based in both Japanese cultural history and present-day experimentation. An abiding tie to nature. These are the threads that run through the contemporary Japanese fiber movement. Through the hands of these artists, new art forms are emerging, rooted in a culture that spent centuries refining its sense of beauty."
