Be my guest: Kyoko Ibe

 
 

Kyoko Ibe is a master of paper. She exhibited all over the world.

It is the first time she visits Israel and will have an exhibition at Inga Gallery.

These pictures were taken at her studio In the mountains of Kyoto, 2011.

She generously demonstrated her technique to a group led by Tirza Paitan, her assistant for many years.

She uses Gampi recycled paper she collects all over Japan, since this kind of paper is hardly made anymore.

 

Choosing a page from the old family book prayer  to insert into the work

First  pulp layer

Dark black pulp added and water

 

Pressing, drying

Refining

 

Ibe-san is One with her work. As all Japanese masters this labor of love flowes from deep respect towards natural materials, for the weather, water, and physical actions learned through generations of hard dedicated work.
