MODERN BORO

Simply put, MODERN BORO is seeing beauty in all things fragile, handmade or in need of repair: a modern interpretation of the intimate, patched aesthetic found in traditional Japanese boro textiles.

I gratefully acknowledge The Craft, Creativity and Design Center for their generous support of my research on the relevance of traditional boro textiles to contemporary craft, art and design.
