Wood Carver Misato Sano

Canine Culture

Hi everyone, CEO Olivia reporting, welcome to Friday. Wood carver Misato Sano hails from in the Myagi prefecture of Japan, she carves wooden busts & full figures of well-groomed dogs, preferring to leave the small gouges from her chisel on their textured exteriors. Each figure has a distinct facial expression, whether curious, joyful, or contemplative.


To dig deeper into Sano’s process & see some of the real-life canines that inspire her sculptural works, head to her Instagram. While there, sniff out her works in ceramics, embroidery, & drawing.

Have a pawsome, safe weekend.

CEO Olivia
