“Sakaguchi-san’s work is the most beautiful Japanese woodworking we have ever seen. We lived in Japan for two years and saw many examples of gorgeous woodworking, but none was more lovely than Sakaguchi-san’s unique and meticulous designs. He combines the painstaking skill of a master carpenter with the design sense of an artist. He chooses the perfect wood for each piece, using the grain and color of the wood itself as the only decoration. His work is subtle and sophisticated, relying on perfection of form and technique to bring ageless style to his designs.”
