* Yukika Kamisaka / 1866-1942
Born in Kyoto, his real name is Yoshitaka. He studied under Mizuhiko Suzuki of the Shijo school, and later entered the school of Kishi Koubou to study design. A painter of the Koetsu Korin school, he produced original drawings for craft works such as lacquerware and textiles, as well as interior decoration, and published numerous collections of designs.
Sekka traveled around Europe and incorporated Art Nouveau styles into her works, which were highly praised in Europe and the United States as someone who pioneered a unique style. In addition, he gave light to modern crafts in Japan and contributed greatly to the subsequent development. Even today, his work is highly acclaimed, especially in Europe and the United States, and is featured on the cover and first 12 pages of Le Monde Hermès No. 38 . Sekka's works are still alive with a world of novel design beauty that even today's leading brands are fascinated by.
