Master Papermaker from Mino, Gifu area: Tastuo Ichihara in his studio:
Still making paper in his late seventies. In this video you can see him making paper with a pattern using the “water shower technique”. A unique pattern is made out of wire and placed above the newly cast paper. Water will be showered over this wire screen onto the paper. The water will leave the imprint on the paper. Once dry these papers will have the look of ‘lace’.
