Michio Ihara 

    Ihara is fortunate artist. Circumstances brought to him a confluence of the best qualities of two different cultures. His unfailing sensibility stems from his Japanese background, as does his impressive mastery of the craft he applies to form his work. His disciplined clear awareness of the artistic means and goals given by our complex industrial society was developed during his contact with the problems of the scientific technology of a most powerful Western industrial nation.
