"Sagemono and Netsuke: Evolution of Simple Utility into Art."

Join us for JASCO's August History Club as we invite Mr. Frank Kuesel, an avid collector and historian of Japanese utilitarian and art objects. He will provide a presentation about the evolution of Sagemono as simple utilitarian items into art objects of great charm and beauty, at times even reflective of the Japanese aesthetic in its highest forms. There will be an opportunity to touch and handle several of examples.


-sagemono are various utilitarian items that were attached to the broad sash (obi) worn around the waist of traditional Japanese garments.  Common sagemono include sectional cases or boxes used to hold medicines, money and other small objects (inro), tobacco pouches and boxes (tonkotsu), pipes and pipe cases (kiseruzutsu), and portable writing sets (yatate).  Netsuke originally functioned as toggles and/or counterweights on the cords that secured sagemono to obi.

8月の日本史クラブは8月20日(土)午前10時半から12時まで、JASCOのダブリンオフィス1階のNetworking Roomで行います。今月のトピックは「提げ物&根付:実用品からアートへの進化」。コレクターであり歴史家であるフランク・クーセルさんをお招きします。提げ物や根付などの骨董品に触れながら、日本の芸術と歴史について楽しく学ぶことができる貴重な機会ですので、ぜひご参加ください。
