Following on interview with Teranishi-san “Teranishi Studio” on  “Individualist “Chptr 14 and Vrs 1”.

Vol. 121 Individualist “Chptr 8 and Vrs 1”

Continued on next Individualist.  I saw him at the handcraft festival called Handmade Marché in Yokohama. His product caught my eyes and I saw him kindly talking with his customer. Of all crafters out there, he was one of the most sophisticated one and his presence also caught my sense to get to know more about him. as we shared couple chats over internet, he actually gave a quite interesting answer to share with you folks. Let us find out what he would like to share for you.    By the way, he just gave me this impression that I might be overthinking about who the hell Japanese are about. Continue Reading →
