I love learning about new art forms… and I especially love anything artistic from the middle east.
Instead of using paint, Japanese Yosegi decorations are made out of natural fine grains and textures of wood. First, timbers are cut into rods of desired sections, the rods are then glued together to form a section of geometrical design pattern. The surface is sliced into thin plates of wood, which are glued onto boxes and other handicraft works. This mosaic-like art originated during Japan’s Edo Period (17th-19th century) and are still respected all over the world.
Check out some cool videos below to learn more about this amazing art form:
See a master at work, starting from the original blocks of wood to the creation of a mosaic so fine, it’s applied like paper.
