Mask Maker Kitazawa has been making masks for both classical and contemporary noh for more than two decades. He has had a special relationship with Richard Emmert and Theatre Nohgaku for much of this period, and also for the last 10 years with Jannette Cheong.
Mask maker and Shinto Temple carver, Hideta Kitazawa, chose to follow in his father’s footsteps and became a second generation woodcarving artist. In 1991, after graduating from the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology with a major in Forestry Studies, he went on to begin intensive woodcarving studies with his father Ikkyou Kitazawa. Since then, he has been the recipient of a number of awards, including the ‘Outstanding Young Artisan’ award.
