Murano meets Murasaki

While down at Tacoma's Museum of Glass recently, I found the work of Yoichi Ohira, a Japanese glassworker who moved to Venice 30 years ago. As far as I'm concerned, Dale Chihuly can hang it up; Ohira's work is just freaking amazing. The term wabi sabi also springs to mind.

Liza Dalby's Murasaki
Haven't seen that Web site on Murasaki--the novel or the woman--before, but it's lovely. The book is quite wonderful in its detail. (It's also a beautiful example of book making, for those interested in such things). My knowledge of Murasaki herself is fairly limited, though I've promised myself at some point to read the tale of Genji, having read Dalby's book.

I actually heard the name "Murasaki" first as the title of a science fiction anthology (it was the name of the planet that was the unifying theme) published years ago by Bantam Spectra.
