Galleries, Museums and Collections

It is Mingei, the crafts movement of the 1920s in Japan, acknowledging the unconscious arts of ordinary people, that empowered Mary Taguchi’s work.

Seeing the beauty of simple, everyday, utilitarian objects, whose forms were arrived at intuitively, has led Mary to a collection of her own indigo dyed cotton textiles that has inspired her work for years.

Travelling extensively and regularly in Japan, Mary has established working relationships with traditional dyers, weavers and stencillers, all small family studios preserving the accumulated knowledge of generations of craftspeople. In particular, Mary has been instrumental in encouraging weavers towards a revival of old patterns.
