The Japanese temples of Kyoto, the old traditional houses with sliding walls (shoji) and the print museums (ukiyo-e) are impressive sights for all lovers of the Far East.
But, astonishingly, what has made the greatest impression on the author of this book are everyday objects.
They need to be deciphered to be understood. Especially those made by passionate craftsmen, in wood, cast iron, ceramics, bamboo... They are real monuments in miniature. So much so that the best craftsmen are officially recognised as "Living National Treasures".
During her many trips to Japan, Barbara Luel gleaned all kinds of objects: for cooking, for painting her notebooks, for decoration or for the table.
