Artist in Residence Weekend | Paul Discoe

Saturday, February 9, 2013 - 11:00am - Sunday, February 10, 2013 - 5:00pm

In conjunction with the exhibition Hammer, Chisel, Drill: Noguchi’s Studio Practice, The Noguchi Museum will host three Artist-in-Residence Weekends.  Each of these artists work with similar tools and materials as Noguchi did and will demonstrate their process. These residencies expand the Museum’s Second Sunday series, featuring demonstrations from 11:00am to 1:00pm and 3:00pm to 5:00pm on Saturday, and an artist talk on Sunday at 3:00pm. 

Paul Discoe

California based Japanese master builder and Zen Buddhist teacher, Paul Discoe will demonstrate the art of woodworking to include traditional Japanese joinery techniques and create a traditional Japanese wood-post-in-a-stone-footing. He will explain why these materials- favored by Noguchi throughout his prolific career- is an important motif in Japanese culture.
