Kumiko is a Japanese art that is hundreds of years old. Traditionally used for shoji screens, it can be adapted for other uses, such as lamps. This piece consists of hundreds of hand cut and fit pieces of straight grain Douglas fir to come up with the asa-no-ha pattern. The frame is made of maple, which makes a subtle contrast to the fir. Approximately 9 inches square by 21 1/2 inches tall.
