Kobo Takada's bamboo woodwings are ornamental woodcraft items. They will balance on just about anything, and sway delicately in the breeze.
Takada used to make industrial items such as components for movie cameras, but one day he made the bold decision to go low tech. Takada's dragonflies are masterfully designed using bamboo from Fukushima, and he takes great pride in them. He also hopes that the therapeutic nature of his products will help strengthen the emotional bonds between people, and between generations.
Each bamboo woodwing is hand made, so no one is exactly like another. Their delicate swaying motion encourages self-reflection and relaxation.
