Grand Prize Winner Hariban Award 2019


More than a dream came true this August 30th, 
when I opened the mail from Benrido Atelier Kyoto, Japan:  

I hope this finds you well. My name is Hideko and on behalf of the Hariban Award team and Benrido as a whole, I am extremely happy to inform you that you have been selected as this year's Hariban Award Grand Prize Winner. From this year’s  results we are honoured to have you as the 6th Hariban Award Winner.

I had to sit down and was very touched. It took me a few 
days to truly believe that it really was going to happen: working with the great artisans and even
 master printer Yamamoto-san. So happy and grateful. Thank you so much!!
