ABOUT

Black board/kokeshi
ARTIST

​​EMU(Toshihiro Umekita)

I run a small shipbuilding business alongside the Seto Inland Sea.

Influenced by my grandfather and father, both shipbuilders, I have been interested in building things since I was a child. My father taught me his techniques on his days off, and I enjoyed making my own furniture, figures, and toys. 

Later, after learning design fundamentals at a vocational school, I made a 20-year career as a graphic designer in Tokyo. 

In 2016, I turned one of my rooms into a workshop and began creating the Blackboard Kokeshi EMU, a piece created by mixing woodworking techniques with graphic design.

EMU(梅北 稔博)

瀬戸内海沿いの小さな造船業を営む船大工の祖父と父親の影響を受け、幼少の頃からものづくりに興味をもつ。

休日には父親に技術を教わりながら自分用の家具や置物、玩具などを制作して楽しんでいた。

後に、東京でグラフィック&キャラクターデザイナーとして約20年のキャリアを積む。

2016年、自宅の一室に工房を構え、グラフィックデザインと木工技術をMIXしたアート作品「黒板こけしEMU」の製作を始める。
