ART IN THE GARDEN: CARVING A NEW PATH FOR AN ANCIENT ART FORM Tradition is not a thing of the past. It flows over time like a river— moving, ever changing, never the same. Keeping the essence of an inherited art form alive over time has been a challenge for fine craftsmen for generations, whether their craft is building gardens or carving wood. But one family in Kamakura, Japan has been remarkably successful in breaking new ground in the art world without losing their ancestors’ mastery of a very old trade. A Family Affair In Kamakura—a small history-bound city located about two hours south of Tokyo—the craftsmanship of carved, lacquered woodwork has been passed down from father to son for 29 generations. And one of the oldest establishments working in this medium is the Goto family’s Hakkodo Kamakura Bori. Breaking new ground, Keiko Goto is leading her family’s historic gallery, the first woman to do so in its history. She’s building upon the tradition of her ancestors while creating work that is innovative and uniquely her own. This April, Keiko and her sister Naoko are bringing four generations of Hakkodo artistry to the Portland Japanese Garden for their first exhibition in the U.S. In the 14th & 15th centuries, artisans in Kamakura became known for their creative use of lacquer in a technique now referred to as Kamakurabori. Inspired by Chinese methods of carving low-relief patterns into many layers of lacquer, this new method of applying lacquer after carving the wood resulted in stunning designs that had greater depth and design possibilities. This technique was used by the sisters’ great-grandfather, Itsuki Goto, when he established Hakkodo to carve Buddhist sculptures. When Buddhism fell out of favor in Japan in the 19th century, Itsuki Goto redirected his work to produce more practical objects such as trays and bowls which showcased his mastery of technique in their

One Extraordinary Experience

FROM THE CEO Dear Garden Members, Spring has officially sprung in the Garden. The buds and blossoms remind us of the renewal we feel each year at this time. During this time of rebirth we actively prepare the physical Garden for the busy summer and fall months just around the corner, the times when the largest crowds visit and the Garden hosts the majority of its cultural festivals and events. Preparations during these spring months are pivotal for the rest of the year. The same holds true with fundraising for the Garden’s Annual Fund: the spring is crucial to ensure that, with the partnership of amazing supporters like you, plans for the year can succeed. The Annual Fund is the primary source of contributions for the Garden, helping to pay for everything from Garden maintenance to the world-class exhibitions and artists the Culture, Arts, and Education department bring to the Pavilion each year. Donations to the Annual Fund are the seeds of so many projects. They ensure that the Garden has the strong foundation needed to achieve our ambitions and fulfill our mission of providing a place of calm and cultural exploration for the community and for visitors from around the world. Contributions to the Annual Fund make up a quarter of our yearly budget. As a non-profit receiving no taxpayer money, the Garden truly relies on you to continue flourishing. As a member, you have already demonstrated your support for the work we do. We hope you’ll go above and beyond, and consider making a spring Annual Fund donation to help us achieve our goals for 2015. Inside this newsletter,

you will find a return envelope if you would like to join us in making this year one of the Garden’s best. You can also donate online at With your help, we’ll make this spring one full of promise of the beauty and inspiration to come. Help us plant the seeds of a truly outstanding 2015, and with your partnership, the Garden will flourish for years to come. Sincerely,

Stephen D. Bloom Chief Executive Officer

Anyone interested in modern Japanese culture has probably stumbled across the term kawaii. Though it roughly translates as ‘cute’ in English, it’s a concept that encapsulates so much more than that. From the fashionable streets of Harajuku to the friendly mascots that adorn Tokyo’s municipal buildings, Japan’s affinity for all things kawaii continues to grow. Bring a touch of this trend home with the items below: Kimono Plush Animals Made in Japan from traditional patterned kimono fabrics, each
