Driven by her love for pastries and cute little things, Momoko TAKAKURA started creating miniature decorative objects and whishes to spread Japanese culture across the world through them. Her works – which are smaller than a coin – are extremely detailed and never fail to amaze both children and adults.
This year, she will come to the festival to make you discover her work at the WABI SABI area alongside many craftsmen eager to show you the wealth of Japanese folklore!
A word on the art of decoration
Japanese decoration have become extremely popular in Western countries for its aesthetic, its zen atmosphere, and its balance. In traditional Japan, decoration was inspired by the country's culutre, and was thus based on love and respect for nature. The layout of furnitures had to fill the household with a feeling of peace and harmony. It is an art in its own right, and is often harder to master than one may think.
