Numinous Woodland Kenbyo (contemplation screen)

Jim Kelso

2010    Size   H: 8.25 in  W: 7.85 in  


A kenbyo (contemplation screen) depicting a mountain waterfall at twilight, with surrounding trees and moss-covered rocky banks. The current inspiration for this piece was my intimate relationship with several waterfalls of this type near my home over the last twenty-five years.The body is a single piece of carved Ebony. The carving of trees, rocks and moss varies from detailed rendition to a vignetted treatment, fading toward the edges.The metalwork water and rock , depicting various types of water activity are rendered in seven pieces of shibuichi using four different alloys.
