For over thirty years, Yoko Zeltserman-Miyaji has masterfully worked with urushi (Japanese lacquer) and wood, fabricated and formed without screws and nails, using the ancient tradition of mortis and tenon joinery.

After discovering the work of Judy McKie and Wendy Maruyama, the merging of sculptural art and studio furniture became the impetus and inspiration for Miyaji’s artistic career. Zeltserman-Miyaji thus became a pioneer, the first Japanese artist to make furniture reflecting the 1970’s American studio furniture movement.

In her Spotlight Exhibition, Nagame no Ii Heya (a beautiful room with a view), each sculptural and functional form incorporates traditional as well as contemporary patterns using kwai nuri (pattern-making) techniques, combining layers of urushi and paint, polished to bring out intricate patterns and colors.

“Miyaji’s furniture epitomizes the genius of Japanese design where form and function come together.” – Midori Oka, former curator, Peabody Essex Museum
