Last year I went for the opening reception of exhibition Lace not lace in Clinton New Jersey. One of the exhibiting artists was Waco Ono. Her art is different from other lace artists. It is playful, radiating joy and happiness and it is bringing something calming to the soul at the same time. Waco is a Japanese artist.
