George Nakashima, Woodworker

We are excited about an independent documentary, George Nakashima, Woodworker, is in production. Please click here to learn more about the project and see how you can contribute to it as well.

A film by John Nakashima. An excerpt from the link above:

This 90-minute documentary is being produced and edited by his nephew, John Nakashima, who has been a PBS producer in West Virginia for over 40 years. He has been recognized through many awards, including five regional Emmys for his documentary producing and editing. George Nakashima, Woodworker is his first major independent production. The documentary is a chronological story of one of the most compelling seeker's journeys, taking the audience to special places and times that few remember today. It continues with George returning to America, just in time to for him and his new family to be incarcerated along with the other 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry. The documentary traces how George began again with literally nothing and within a year, talked with MOMA about someday showing his work there. Several years after that he and his work had appeared in many of the largest circulation magazines in America. George was successful.

At the end of his life he was doing what many considered his best work. George divorced himself from anything that could be called fashion. He wrote, "There is actually no 'modern' and no 'traditional,' but rather honesty and dishonesty of concept... Whatever styles and forms we have should evolve from the methods and materials used."

This comprehensive documentary began production after his death, so George's voice includes interviews on video, audiotape, correspondence, transcribed oral histories, his autobiography Soul of a Tree and other writings. New footage was shot for this documentary in the U.S., Japan and India with Sony HD video cameras interviews with his family, historians, critics, woodworkers, and associates. Photographed on Super16mm film and large sensor video camera are the workshops, showrooms, and residences in the Nakashima compound, major collectors' homes, Nakashima woodworkers creating furniture, and the best examples of his work including some of his most historic works.

The documentary is targeted for national distribution on PBS stations.

Nakashima at NID in India

Photo selection from Mira, Kevin and John's recent trip to India. More about the trip below from the Times of India, printed 23 October 2016.

AHMEDABAD: Can a man connect with a tree by extending its life as furniture? Can furniture be beautiful and functional at the same time? How even the so-called defects in wood planks can be made to contribute to a beautiful finish? These were some of the questions that led George Nakashima, iconic American-Japanese furniture designer, to take a unique approach towards the discipline that is followed even today.

The year 2016 marks 52 years of Nakashima's visit to then National Design Institute (NDI) in November 1964 when he collaborated with local designers and created a range of furniture that was both contemporary and traditional.Nakashima, who was invited by Gira Sarabhai, one of the founders of NDI, added to his portfolio of already famous designs and gave the institute his 32 designs which the workshop at institute had produced till 1975. 'Nakashima at NID', a string of events including workshop, symposium and exhibition, is celebrating the influential designer's association with the institute. The exhibition will be open till November 21.

The organisers said that one marvels at the pieces even today as there is no use of screws or rivets, thus keeping the finishing to a minimum.Even after so many years they are both comforting and stylish. Nakashima's signature was to use 'butterfly' to
joint the planks. A highlight of the work is use of rosewood here which is not seen in any of his works. Mira Nakashima, George's daughter and creative director of George Nakashima Woodworkers in Pennsylvania, US, is taking the legacy ahead. "My father was highly influenced by India and was called 'Sundarananda' by Sri Aurobindo," she said.

A Note from the Mjölk Gallery:

Mjölk is honored to present the first Canadian retrospective of works by legendary architect and craftsman George Nakashima, and his daughter, architect, designer and head of the Nakashima Studio, Mira Nakashima. We are proud to showcase a large collection of iconic works by George Nakashima as well as new works from Mira Nakashima's Keisho (continuation) collection. Mira Nakashima, along with her daughter Maria, and granddaughter Maya will be special guests in attendance.

The Nakashima furniture collection will be complemented by a curated collection of art by some of Japan's most famous contemporary artisans. This group of artists include potters Masanobu Ando and Koichi Uchida, wood artisans Ryuji Mitani and Shinji Tsukuda, and metal artists Takejiro and Mami Hasegawa.

The group of artisans will provide a living context to the Nakashima collection and offer visitors an exclusive opportunity to see and purchase works by artists who seldom show work outside of their native Japan. We believe this group of artists capture the spirit of the Nakashima's work and carry on the mission of providing beautiful well-crafted items that go beyond their basic function and provide something beautiful that enriches the soul.

A Note from the Mira Nakashima:

Although we have had ten shows in Japan, and two in Korea, as well as other places in the United States including the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle last year, and one at the Moderne Gallery in Philadelphia this coming September, this is the very first time Nakashima's has ever had a show in Canada. We feel very much in consonance with both the Scandinavian and Japanese design forms heretofore exhibited at Mjolk and are very honored to be chosen as representative of the Mjolk aesthetic. We have chosen the wood with John and Juli Baker, for the primarily "classic" George Nakashima furniture pieces, plus one named "Shoki" or early period, designed in 1941 in Seattle, and several of Mira's "Keisho" (continuation) designs, including a free-form Myrtle Burl "tsuitate" Standing piece for the front window.

In order to assure continuity into the next generation, Mira's children have recently become shareholders, and her architect daughter Maria, with her artistic daughter Maya, will make their debut at the Mjolk opening on July 24th, as representatives of the future.

Duke & Duke is proud to announce the first west coast exhibition of architect and craftsman, Mira Nakashima. As the Creative Director of George Nakashima's studio, Mira has transcended her wood working heritage, through the exploration of marrying the use of quality woods with technical design. Mira's ability to connect with natural materials, was a method she learned during the training she received from her father, George, where she has mastered the technique of translating her intuition and spiritual connection with each tree. The Nakashima collection demonstrates a refined international style and Japanese craftsmanship that is organic and classic. Mira's wood works will be accompanied with ceramic works by Paul Philp.
