Ki Arts
Ki Arts represents the work of Japanese master carpenter, Hiroshi Sakaguchi, and was established in 1985 in Northern California. Sakaguchi-san has had long experience adapting Japanese design to Western needs. The architectural spaces and garden structures designed and built by him express the sense of beauty, simplicity, and harmony so treasured in Japanese aesthetic. All construction is done with high quality wood using traditional Japanese joinery. Most wood surfaces are hand-planed making them luxurious to sight and touch. Ki Art's mission is to bring the best in Japanese design and craftsmanship to your home. The work of Sakaguchi-san has been featured in books, magazines, newspapers, the Home and Garden cable channel's "Modern Masters" series, and in a documentary film, "Being In the World" ("Ki" in Ki Arts is pronounced like the word "key" and means "wood" in Japanese.)
