Event Description JFG is proud to present an exhibition of Japanese fiber artist Maki Ishiwata from the Chiba prefecture. After receiving her BFA at the San Francisco Art Institute in California, Ishiwata worked as an art instructor at the local elementary and middle school for 14 years. During Ishiwata’s 25 years in America, her potential in various creative fields grew. Since returning to Japan in 2007, and under the influence of her mother who worked with the lore of the traditional Japanese handmade paper (washi), Ishiwata became deeply charmed by its beauty and started to create original “plant figures” using washi. Development of the technique with paper strings and ligature became her characteristic style.
