Nobuyuki San a Master Craftsman, Artist and Friend – Yonezawa Japan

Nobuyuki-san – Master Craftsman, Artist, Photographer and Friend

I meet Nobuyuki-san (Nobuyuki Takahashi) about 10 years ago during a visit to Yonezawa, Yamagata, Japan.

Ever since then I make it a point to visit my friend and share stories over a cup of coffee in his home studio.

Nobuyuki-san has been carving Otakapoppo for 35 years now and highly recognized in Japan and around the world for his craftsmanship skills. Although Nobuyuki-san pieces are simple, it takes a great deal of skill to create objects of the highest quality. His travels took him to Disneyland in Calif., on six different occasions, where his demonstrations were popular and onlookers were full of curiosity as they watched him create a bird with a layer of beautiful feathers using only his chisel and a log. We hope your inspired by Nobuyuki Takahashi skills.

On this visit and with Nobuyuki-san permission we created this video to highlight some of his great skills including his wood carving of-course, his art, photography, calligraphy, and music. I hope you enjoy watching as much as I had visiting him.

Thank you for watching.

Telling Stories and Meeting People

28 11 2014

Telling stories, meeting people from close and far away places, enjoying the creative process and art, having fun doing things I enjoy. Here is a video collage from some of these moments.

I also enjoy testing new technology and applications (Apps) from time to time. Taking photos and videos has become so easy in recent time that the days of creating and telling stories then sharing them with your family and friends or the world is just a few clicks from many smart phone, tables or a computer.

Here is a short video collage I created, edited and shared from my phone.
