にわしゅう日和 ~Visit from China~

こんにちは!
初日の出1

イエニーで~す。

最近仕事でバタバタなので、
なかなかブログを書くの余裕がありませんでした。。。

面白いこといっぱいありましたのに。。。

たとえば、数週間まえに中国の方のガーデンデザイナーが交流するため訪問しました。

Hello, it's Jenny again!
The recent weeks I have been super busy preparing the Real Japanese Garden website. I had no time to write any new posts, although a lot happened since the garden show.

For example, we received a visitor from China. Mr Cai is a garden designer from NanJing. This is his web site: 京品庭院设计

We spent nearly three hours talking about how Garden Design is done in Japan, in China and Europe, and about what challenges each area has. Though one challenge seems to be common in every country - people think about their gardens too late in the design processビックリマーク雷. After the house has been built, there is no room for change and often, no budget left for a good garden design. おうち

About the costs to build a garden: While the work wages in Japan are relatively high, which makes a garden expensive, Chinese garden designers face the challenge to find good skilled labor and supervisors - The garden designs are excellent on paper, but unless every step on the construction site is supervised closely, the actual garden might end up looking entirely different...

I was also surprised to learn that it seems to be common for home owners in China to have a Koi carp pond - nearly 80% of Mr. Cai's clients ask for one in the design briefing!クローバー

So, yesterday we received a parcel from Mr Cai. In it was a beautiful box with models of Ming Dynasty furniture made out of Red Sandal wood and two pictures from our visit.



One picture is now on my desk, another on Hayano-San's pinboard (wall) and the model furniture is on display. I think that, especially in these times, it is important to meet real people from different countries and keep partaking in the global exchange. After all, there is always something new to be learnt!ひらめいた



I hope I will have the chance to go to China one day and visit Mr. Cai and his lovely wife again! クローバー

では、until my next blog entry!

よろしくお願いします

にわしゅう日和 ~ガーデンデザインアカデミー - Garden Design Academy~

テーマ:“日記”
こんにちは!

イエニーです。星

昨日は古橋先生のE and G Academi (エクステリア&ガーデン・アカデミー)を見学に行って来ました。


A few weeks ago, Furuhashi-Sensei invited me to visit his Garden Design school in Tokyo. Yesterday, I finally had the time to go. I was curious to see the differnces between my Garden Design school in London (English Gardening School) and a Japanese Garden Design school (www.eandg.co.jp)



Today's lesson: Perspective drawings

This is a subject a lot of students, especially ones with little drawing experience, are really afraid of. So I was really surprised to find a room full of students working on really perfect drawings. Students that have only studied Garden Design for 6 months or less. Furuhashi-Sensei gave very clear step-by-step instructions on how to use a picture of the front of a house and a few easy techniques to create a very detailed perspective drawing. Just - WOW! 星




These are some of his drawings:



I think in England, we learnt a much freer, more casual technique, but it sure is great to be able to draw in both styles.

So, I hope I can visit this school again some time,
it really was a fun experience (although Furuhashi-Sensei seems like a very strict teacher, but in Japan that's a very good thingひらめいた)

では、until my next blog entry!

Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!
