皇居二重橋

皇居二重橋は皇居のシンボルとして、また皇室と国民をつなぐ架け橋として、
さまざまな歴史の足跡を記して来ました。
何百年と変わらぬ景観を人々に与え、修学旅行や東京観光の定番となり、
近年では海外の観光客にも有名な観光スポットとなっています。
また、その石垣、石橋の造形美は、世界に誇れる芸術品であり、
日本を代表する風景でもあります。
その景観を、浮世絵から続く伝統の技法で、精密に木版画にしました。
忠実に再現する為のさまざまな技法に加え、令和時代の足跡を記す
デザインも加えた、新時代の伝統木版です。

原図作りとして、まず水面に二重橋が映る
写真を撮りましたが、中央部は、やぐらを
強調する為に、望遠で撮った映像に
置き換えました。
令和即位の礼の日、午後からの式典に
合わせて雨が止み、皇居には虹が出ました。
それを映像化して右上には虹、水面上には
新しい天皇・皇后を意味する白鳥を
追加しました。

この写真を原図として、忠実に木版画化を
進めました。
墨線(輪郭線)画と各色板のデザイン化を
進めた後、それぞれの版木を彫り、重ね摺り
を行いました。
20枚弱の重ね摺りですが、色と色との重なりで
新たな色を作る技を使い、見かけ上は
30色近くの色を表現しています。

Angkor Wat

World Heritage Angkor Wat Woodblock prints

 
 
In March, 2018 I was invited by the World Wood Culture Society (IWCS) and participated in World Wood Day 2019 held in Cambodia.
Upon its participation, I was asked to visit Cambodia / Angkor Wat to provide the visitors the experience to produce woodcut prints by them-self.

World Wood Day

 

The Production process

We used two photos as the original figure.
The left picture was used for trimming the outlines, the right picture has been used as color sample.
From these two pictures, we designed the woodblock print.
To make it possible for anyone to experience, we made it a simple color composition that would be finished in 4 rubs, but it was designed so that you can see all details even with this simple setup..








Based on this design, we then proceeded to make woodblock prints in accordance with traditional woodblock print techniques.

The exterior of the greeting card version is a handmade item of Ukiyo-wooden original.
It has a two-page spread structure, and it can also take out only woodcut prints, it also has a pocket structure.
2 "washi" (Japanese traditional paper) messaging guards are bundled. (Plain and alphabetical message included)
Also the envelopes are included, but even if these are combined, the total weight is only 23 g.
The outer dimensions of the envelope are 12 cm × 17.5 cm, and when sending to the domestic, it fits within the fixed form.

 

The completed woodblock

The "four edition" woodblock print was excavated based on traditional techniques specially for the sculptor's hand.
We tried to make it as easy as possible for everyone to experience the very simple configuration of 1 sheet for the contour lines (black lines) and 3 color boards.
However, since the ink line wood has been carved into details of the level equivalent to Ukiyo-e, we also made consideration to appear to details as long as it successfully slides.

Experience line landscape

For the people of Cambodia, Angkor Wat and the national flag are a symbolic characters.
Also for that reason, it was a great success due to unexpected visitors at our booth.
Because it was right an experiencefor everyone, it was not easy to create woodblock prints by them-self well. However, everyone was delighted when they finished they own created Angkor Wat ukiyo-e.

At this event, we used this woodblock as a trial version, but since the wooden layer are very high quality, the wood block prints of professional person would be art.
I explained it to the IWCS, and got permission to sell the work made by professionals .
