Leigh Sloggett has been carving Netsuke since 1992. He studied netsuke carving in Japan under Bishu Saito, Yasufusa Saito, Ryoshu Miyazawa, Mitsuyuki Aoki and Goraku Matsuda.
His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world, including the British Museum, Tokyo National Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum (see below), and can be found in many important private collections.
His carving, ‘Kingfisher’, is in the Museum of Fine Art Boston collection and several works are in the Tokyo National Museum as part of the Prince Takamado Collection.
In 1997, the Japanese Broadcasting Association (NHK) produced a short documentary about Leigh’s Netsuke. Various articles have also been written about his work in a range of publications, such as the International Netsuke Society Journal and Daruma magazine.
