Kenji Sato is an active master sculptor from Asahikawa, Hokkaido, who has celebrated his 50th anniversary as a wood carver.
He is a sculptor who has been working with wood and creating numerous works since he was 22 years old, and will turn 73 in 2023.
The products are mainly made of cute, abstract wooden carved bears with beveled edges, affectionately known as "Ken-chan bears."
The carved wooden bears are created by calculating the annual rings (patterns on the cross section of the tree), and each piece has a different expression, allowing you to feel the warmth and dynamism of the wood.
