My students are about to start a reductive carving assignment. The assignment is based off a mixture of the Bauhaus idea of the hand sculpture (a sculpture that is conceived and perceived with touch as a focus) and the observation and reproduction natural forms. This netsuke (18th century, artist unknown) is, to me, a beautiful mixture of natural form and tactile experience as it would have been used on a drawstring as part of pouch commonly worn during the Edo period. I have always been fascinated by netsuke and I am so excited to share this with my students! (📸 by @metmuseum one of the many public domain images from their site!)
