[About Artist]
About Artist who has made up "Kimono-Glass Dish" (Kimono or Obi(Belt) in between two glass plates.

Mituyasu Yokota developed his own medium and process as a contemporary means of respecting and reviving the traditional art of Japanese Kimono and Obi. These practices are today less and less common, so by preserving their memory in glass, Yokota creates and preserves a tribute to their rich heritage and history. In his works, Yokota fuses traditional Japanese papers to glass, occasionally incorporating extra three-dimensional elements like diamonds and, in some works, actual vintage Kimonos from the Edo period. Founder and sole practitioner of this method, Yokota calls his artwork and process "Kimono-Glass Dish."

Indeed, in the spirit of the tradition that he seeks to preserve, Yokota is able to recreate that very elegant, delicate sense of natural beauty, calm, and peace that can be found in so much of the history of Japanese art. In pastel colors, flowers, cherry blossoms, and birds sweep, as if on a breeze, across abstracted backdrops. Japanese culture and history is clearly of primary importance to Yokota, who has also referenced in his work the much-heralded 11th century novel by Murasaki Shikibu, The Tale of Genii.
