Emi Fujisawa is a Japanese textile artist based in Oxfordshire, England specialized in hand weaving with natural materials and natural dyeing. She is also a ceramic artist / potter.
While working at her art in England, she realised that she felt strongly identified with some of the traditional Japanese philosophies, specially “Wabi-Sabi”, which is a world view centred on the acceptance of transience and finding beauty in imperfection, and likes to observe the effects of time and the elements of the nature over the objects who give them an imperfect beauty.
She is also influenced by the study of traditional textiles, techniques and materials from around the globe, inspired by Confucius words, who said: “We can learn new things from the past”. She loves to explore different countries and find traditional materials, techniques and ideas. She has developed her own style to express her art which is based in a Japanese identity with European influences.
