水引のあたらしい物語
水引 で 絵描く 創造する

古来より、水引を扱う行為は祭事や儀式とされてきました。RITUAL は、水引のもつ儀礼や儀式の伝統と、絵描く創るという個人の感性を親和させて作品を制作しています。

600年頃、大陸から持ち帰られた献上品に巻かれていた紐を、日本人が贈答品の装飾と捉えたことが水引の始まりと云われています。一本の紐に日本人は精神性を託し、時勢と共に様式を変化させながら水引の文化を語り継いできました。

その創造性と、現代に生きる感覚を大切にし、私たちは、水引のあたらしい物語を生み出しています。
線が集まり面になり、面が形になりあたらしい作品が生まれます。 

ジュエリーラインはRITUAL。オブジェラインはRITUAL the craftsとして発表。
水引は、作家出身地であり現在アトリエのある、長野県飯田市の飯田水引を使用。

A New Story about "Mizuhiki"
Arts drawn and created by "Mizuhiki" strings

Since the ancient ages, Japanese has used Mizuhiki strings for important festivals and ceremonies.One string becomes one surface. The surface finally forms the shape, which is the moment of becoming "Mizuhiki Arts"
We,"RITUAL" & "RITUAL the crafts" produce our works with the unique sensibilities as artists, combined together with the traditions come from the ritual and the ceremony using Mizuhiki strings.

The history of Mizuhiki strings has been back to around the year 600. The ancient Japanese brought back the gifts wrapped with the strings from Eurasia continent. They perceived those strings as decorations showing a spirit of repect. That is said as the beginning of Mizuhiki. Since then, Japanese has inherited the culture of Mizuhiki to nowadays with entrusting their spirituality to a single string, even though the style has changed over time.
