komorebi 1


This collection is inspired by the way light filters through the branches of a tree. In every house I’ve lived in, the trees outside my window become familiar friends. I still remember the cottonwood trees outside my childhood window, the maples outside the windows of the next few houses I lived in, and finally the oaks outside my windows now. There is no word in English for this, so I’ve borrowed the word from the Japanese. Komorebi means “the light between the leaves”.
