In this issue:
Volume Three celebrates Japan’s enduring relationship with cedar. Known as sugi in Japanese, the tall branches of these sacred trees – a symbol of Shintoism – provide a means for kami to descend to earth.
Sugi grow in abundance throughout most of the country and are beloved not only for their spiritual connections, but they are famed for their pleasant fragrance, warm colour, and soft, pliable texture that has been used for centuries in construction.
In this issue we reflect upon on how Japan’s perception of cedar has evolved and changed from ancient appreciations to its view as somewhat of a modern day menace. We contemplate how we may effectively use cedar to become more sustainably attuned with Japan’s forested places and we visit creatives and designers whose visions are inspiring positive change and producing exquisite products along the way.
Volume Three is a celebration of artisanship and traditions and an embrace of contemporary cedar within our everyday life.
