Richard Flavin grew up in the Boston area and currently lives and works in Tokyo, Japan, where he is a papermaker and printmaker. He and his wife run Sind Gallery, where they show her textile work and his prints and paper works.

Here are a few of Richard’s pieces that were hanging in the gallery.


I didn’t get to see Richard’s papermaking studio (Jionji Press) is in Saitama Prefecture, but he sent me these photos of his papered floors and kitchen cabinets.
