Delicate Work by Kay Sekimachi

Boris and I were in Seattle for an extended Labour Day long weekend to visit friends. For once I did not do very much gallery hopping while we were there, but we did make the trek to the Bellevue Arts Museum to see their three shows.

I very badly wanted to see the work of Kay Sekimachi, specifically her series of delicate bowls made from leaf skeletons. She also had a bowl made from wasp nest paper. All of it is an incredible use of natural materials, which I found very inspiring.

The work is only a very small part of In The Realm of Nature, an exhibition of Kay Sekimachi’s work along with that of her husband, Bob Stocksdale.
