「OBM handcraft」
  • I have been looking for ways to collaborate with "contemporary art and craft" as one of the ways to promote "handwork" traditional crafts and folk art that I am currently working on, and O.B.M Handcrafts was a concrete measure.
  • The category "Handicraft" used to include traditional crafts and folk art.
    However, I felt the passion and vigorous creativity to put on a young art through the activity of the people who are doing art activity in the art and the craft of the Nasu Heights recently, expanded the object of "life with Japanese beauty" from a conventional frame, and came to the advocacy of new "life with Japanese beauty" including a contemporary art and the craft.

  • In addition, it has been said that "Shimotuke, Aizu, and Tsugaru As mentioned in the "Handicraft Department/Policy" section, we have decided to carry out specific activities under the theme of "Creation of Handicraft Products" through collaboration with these people.
    On my website, I will introduce these collaborative creative products under the category of "Old Traditional Technic But Modern Design Handcrafts "O・B・M Handcrafts"
  • The idea of "living with Japanese beauty" is one guiding principle in the collaboration of contemporary arts and crafts with traditional crafts and folk art.
    It is a thing which can be said to be Producut by 'traditional technique' and 'new creative art' with the beauty which responds to the sensitivity of people who live in the present age 'functionally' and 'today' demanded by life.

  • Furthermore, it is not just woodwork, cloth, or bamboo products, but also a mixture of them.
    New O・B・M Handcraft products are introduced on the page of "Shimotuke-Aizu-Tsugaru Handwork" and "Handwork Blog/O・B・M Handcraft"
