[More shapes and designs can be accommodated if diagrams and sketches are provided]

Conventional Kaba-zaiku artworks have simple shapes and designs due to the natural characteristics and limitations of the materials.  We belive the concept that “More shapes and designs can be accommodated if diagrams and sketches are provided.” 
These are the challenges of overcoming limitations, or the attempt to reconstruct the existing craftmanship of Kaba-zaiku in order to create a new future for the art form.
