When wooden furniture is art, it becomes a conversation between nature and the craftsperson, harmonizing the inherent qualities of natural materials with the vision of the designer.  Tadao Arimoto, a woodworker based in Pittsburgh, will share his unique technique and philosophy honed from a background in design with decades of experience using traditional Japanese and modern tools on American woods.

Join the Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania for this special lecture and demonstration on March 3, 2022. Light hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be provided.

Tadao Arimoto is a woodworker living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Before arriving in the United States, Tadao studied industrial design at the International Design Institute in Kyoto. For the past 40 years, he has practiced his craft in Pittsburgh and has often travelled to attend and teach domestic and international workshops.

In recent years Tadao has contributed works to local universities, presented his works at national events, and been recognized as a Master Visual Artist by the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Tadao's focus has shifted from private works to larger and more public commissions, including a bench commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the Pittsburgh Sakura Project.
