Fukumoto Shigeki is a world renowned Rozome artist whose work is frequently exhibited in many different countries. He is also the author of several important books on KOGEI (high quality Japanese crafts) and textiles.

In 1992, he developed a new technique he describes as textile inlay, which involves cutting very small pieces of dyed fabric and reassembling them into large pieces which express a new sensuality and dimensional depth. A brief documentary film on this website illustrates this complicated working process.

In March 2016, professor Fukumoto retired from Osaka University of Arts and is now working fulltime as an artist.
