Ursula Funke: Shohin - Presentation (German and English)



Ursula Funke developed a fascination for "small" things at an early age. Since the 1980s, she has been working with bonsai - and this led to a special fondness for shohin. On numerous trips to Japan, she specifically visited Shohin exhibitions and Shohin gardens. She speaks Japanese and learned a lot about shohin display design from Tomohiro Masuri, the president of the Japanese Shohin Society.

Her self-published book shows the interested reader what a harmonious Shohin display can look like. She deals with all components: Shohin trees, pots, shelves, tables and other accessories are addressed. It also shows award-winning displays from various exhibitions. We are proud to be able to offer you this multi-faceted compendium.
