CREATIONS

 

At the request of the Kami no Ondo shop in Nagoya, I have used the colours of the four seasons in Japan in various Western designs.

In spring, Haru, we speak of ohanami, to express the state of “contemplation of flowers”.

Autumn, Aki:

 

The contemplation of the change of autumn colours is momijigari, literally “autumn leaf hunting”.

Kôyô, “red leaf”, refers to the reddening of Japanese maple leaves.
