Keisuke Serizawa, Retrospective

It was raining all day long, but I had a very good time to go to an art museum today.
Keisuke Serizawa was a Japanese textile designer, and he was designated as a Living National Treasure. His fabric dyeing was amazing. He was from Shizuoka prefecture ( so am I! ) and I heard that it was the first exhibition of him in Hokkaido. I had known him when I had lived in Shizuoka, but it was the first time to see it for me. A person wearing Kimono gets a discount at the museum though I didn't.

They were all marvelous! Almost all of his works remind me of JAPAN, I live there(here?) though. Calenders and Kimonos were wonderful, too.
The most impressive his work for me was the combinations Japanese characters ( Hiragana or Kanji ) and pictures. For example, a picture of candle (Rosoku in Japanese) follows the letter ろ (Ro in Japanese, Hiragana letter). It's like A B C .

I bought some postcards and wrapping cloths there.
I thought that I wanted people all over the world to see his works.

I like those furoshiki a lot, especially the one with the blue border. I wouldn't mind having some of those, actually. Thanks for posting about this.

Yesterday I wrote "vacuum." Vacuum in this case means I ate the food really fast, like a vacuum cleaner (http://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?__mk_ja_JP=%83J%83%5E%83J%83i&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=dyson&x=0&y=0 for examples) cleans up dust or dirt. Kind of like nintendo mascot Kirby (カービィ in Japanese).

Hello, just visiting,

Thank you very much for your comment and the explanation of vaccume.
I was surprised that you know a lot of Japanese like furoshiki. I wonder if you speak Japanese.
The shop has not only furoshiki but also cloth bags and so on. I wanted to buy more. I love his works and goods of the shop. The exhibition will expire on July 16th. When I go back to my home town, I want to go his museum again.
