In 2015, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Ko Kado of Kamisoe かみ添 to create paper products with the concept “Music & Rhythm”. The piece of music was “In a Landscape” by John Cage, something Kado-san likes.
The design was then transferred to a wooden block stamp cut by an artisan in Kyoto. The lines were so intricate, they did a really good job.
Kamisoe uses natural pigments and glue bindings to create their paper products. The design was then stamped on to the paper.
This whole process can be seen below.
