My Take on an Ancient, Japanese Craft

Kumiko is a delicate and sophisticated technique of assembling wooden pieces without the use of nails. Thinly slit wooden pieces are grooved, punched and mortised, and then fitted individually using a plane, saw, chisel and other tools to make fine adjustments.

I've been fascinated with this art form for a number of years and have recently begun using the technique in the assembly of various lamps, tables and assorted wall pieces.
