The material of Ms. Shibata’s works is extremely unique and important. It is difficult to understand without an explanation, but in many of her works, the object is expressed by using it as the material for it. In other words, the paint used for cherry blossoms on the folding screen is made from dried cherry petals.
The lacquered bowls are made from the traditional bowls of different families. It feels that this is an attempt to create works of art that represents the time that each family has spent together.
Each work of art has a mysterious atmosphere that surprises in such a way to betray the very concept of art itself.
