Handmade “Fog Catcher” Installation





Artist Nami Yamamoto created this exquisite “Fog Catcher” installation from hand knotted nets that she placed amongst redwood trees for an exhibition by the University of California.

According to Japanese legend, the immortal wizard “Sennin” performed miracles in his solitary existence, sustained only by the mountain fog that shrouded his days. A similar tale can be told of the California Coastal Redwood tree, also immortally old and miraculous in size and character, which derives a significant portion of its water supply from the atmospheric conditions so prevalent in summertime northern California.
