Inspiration can come from the most unusual places. On a trip to Paris, Natasha happened upon a traveling exhibition of a Japanese expert in kimono dyeing, Itchiku Kubota. Together, these block pieces form a mosaic of colour in wood.
Kimonos² is a collection of marquetry art pieces. These square, 6″ x 6″ pieces can be displayed together or indivually.

Chisai Hana means "tiny flowers." The charm of this piece is the subtle flowers going across the bottom of the kimono as well as the left sleeve. It invites one to look at the fine detail closer.
Nami means "wave." It is Natasha's favourite piece in the collection.
Kumo to Sagiri
Kumo to Sagiri means "clouds and mist." Feel like you are looking into a scene from early morning, where the mist has not yet dissipated and the clouds are low.
Kotan means "elegant simplicity." By keeping the design simple, the gorgeous wood speaks for itself.
Sensu means "folding fan," and refers to the small fans decorating the kimono. Each tiny fan is made of a different wood type, bringing depth to the piece.
Soujun means "early spring." This kimono celebrates the blossoms that announce the early spring.
Uzu means "swirl." The name captures the fun in this piece.
