    Katachi or the essence of Japanese design — the form, symmetry, and workmanship of traditional craft. Beautiful and functional, the objects presented in Katachi are made of materials that have played an important role in Japanese life for centuries: wood, bamboo, stone, fiber, metal, earth. This masterwork , by Takeji Iwamiya, one of Japan's foremost photographers, is a lovingly rendered tribute to these objects and the culture they sprang from.
