YUKIHIRO AKAMA New Structures
Japanese maker, Yukihiro Akama creates a series of miniature ‘house-sketches’ from native British wood.
Yukihiro Akama's studio is located in a converted shed in his garden in Yorkshire. He works in silence, prefering the quiet as he spends his days "cutting wood into small house-shaped sections, spending a whole day working the surface textures, then working on detailed expression, painting, putting clays etc." The only sound you may hear coming from the studio is the news on the radio, which he listens to in order to practice his English.
