Craftsman’s Notes

Western visitors to Japan may see stand-alone slabs of wood in some homes serving as a low screening devices, a variation of a tsuitate screen serving to lend privacy to those seated upon tatami covered floors. In the Western home a piece like this can serve as a object of natural beauty enhanced by the craftsman’s skills.
