Schwantje Stuart


Cherry shoji screens with Sapele lower door panels and Kinwashi Warlon laminated paper. The pattern is what I call Mona Pearl's moon since I think she was the first person we built  this style for. Actually the first was a smaller version that you can see here.

As usual, Elvis stepped in for scale. He is 6' tall. The shoji are to span 116" less side jambs. Each shoji is 40" x 80" x 1-3/8"
