Haruko Uehara

Among Japanese traditional dresses, there are a number of splendid works on which beautiful changes of the four seasons and nature are expressed with various coloring and designs. Wishing to reach the artistic height of those works, and using the woofs and warps, I will keep weaving my moving experiences through travels and encounters with different people into fabrics.
