Dollmaker, renaissance artist
Known for brilliant Japanese Mataro dolls
Accomplished calligrapher, kimono designer
By Tim LAI, Staff Reporter
The death of a renowned self-taught dollmaker has created a large hole in Toronto's Japanese artistic community.
Miyoko OGURA was well known in the Japanese community for her artistic brilliance in the creation of Mataro dolls -- figures based on the daily life and folk tales of the Heian dynasty (784-1191), a period noted for its peace and cultural blossoming. She died September 29 at the age of 74.
Born in the southern prefecture of Kagoshima, OGURA was the only certified Mataro teacher in Toronto. Instructors must send in dolls for examination in order to be licensed by the Mataro Doll Craft Academy in Tokyo.
Other teachers outside Japan operate in New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Paris and Hong Kong.
Mataro dolls are a type of Kimekomi Ningyou -- wooden dolls dressed in kimonos and other Japanese garb.
They preserve the tradition of hand-carved wooden dolls developed on the riverbanks of Kyoto more than 250 years ago.
The founder of the academy, Mataro KANABAYASHI, discovered a new way to manufacture these types of dolls by mixing Paulownia sawdust with glue.
OGURA was a special teacher who was able to see all the careful details on a doll, according to a long-time student.
"There's always a point on a doll that's very difficult and that's where she would come in and help you," said Carol DOI, 62, a 17-year student of OGURA. "It takes you back into the past of Japan."
Even with her years of experience, DOI said she wouldn't be able to teach future students the way OGURA did.
Hiroko PIGGOTT, 51, a newer student, said OGURA was patient and affectionate, but challenging.
PIGGOTT joined her classes a year ago, after she saw the Mataro dolls and wanted to buy some for her children.
OGURA told PIGGOTT it would be more meaningful if she took the time to learn and make the dolls herself.
Dolls, which must be bought in kits from Japan that cost up to $1,000, can take nearly 50 hours to complete.
"She did meticulous work," PIGGOTT said.
OGURA, who immigrated to Toronto in 1959, had been teaching the Mataro art form for more than 30 years.
For the past 23 years, she'd been living alone -- she had no children -- following the death of her husband, Hisao OGURA, but her love for people brought her to many community events.
She was a helpful volunteer at the Seicho-No-Le Church, especially when it came to preparing food.
Often during classes and events at the church, OGURA would tantalize the taste buds of others with her sweet Japanese delicacies.
Red bean cakes were the favourite of 80-year-old Kay YAMAMOTO, a long-time friend and fellow practitioner at the church.
YAMAMOTO said her friend was a renaissance woman when it came to revealing Japanese art.
In addition to creating Mataro dolls, OGURA practised Odori -- traditional Japanese dancing -- was an accomplished calligrapher and designed elegant kimonos from scratch.
"She's one of these people that doesn't walk up stairs, she runs," said DOI.
In her 70s, OGURA still went to her Tai-Chi classes nearly every morning.
OGURA had hundreds of dolls in her home, many of them stored in boxes, and DOI doesn't know what will happen to the collection.
In 2004, OGURA donated sets of court and Samurai dolls to the Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care in Scarborough.
She also provided a set to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre after a big showing of her dolls at the centre in September.
"Her displays were always special because they were shows you don't see much," said Jim URA, cultural programs co-ordinator for the cultural centre.
"She wasn't there to become famous. She just enjoyed the fact that people came and looked," added DOI.
OGURA was set to travel back to Japan at the end of the month to help celebrate her mother's 100th birthday.
A memorial service will be held today at the Seicho-No-Le Church at 622 Victoria Park Ave. at 3 p.m.

Kaye SARGENT, Oxford County Libertarian stalwart, dies
Was a candidate in every provincial and federal election since By Bruce URQUHART, Sun Media, Wed., November 22, 2006
Innerkip -- Kaye SARGENT, a fixture of Oxford County's political scene for more than two decades, has died.
SARGENT -- who ran in every provincial and federal election since 1981 -- died Tuesday morning at Woodstock General Hospital.
She was remembered today for her devotion to her family and to Libertarian principles.
And she was remembered as someone who counted political foes as her personal Friends.
SARGENT was founder and president of the local Libertarian Party riding association, as well as deputy leader of the Ontario organization, which urged voters to put their civil liberties above the needs of the state.
“She took her politics very seriously,” said Doctor Bruce HALLIDAY, a former Tory Oxford member of Parliament, “but that didn't preclude her from Friendships with people of different political views&hellip We were always invited to her Christmas party every year. She was an exceptional person.&rdquo
Greig MORDUE, Liberal candidate in the most recent federal election, said SARGENT was always warm and engaging: “The democratic process in Oxford County really lost a standard bearer.&rdquo
Libertarian leader Jean-Serge BRISSON said SARGENT took every opportunity to voice her convictions.
“It's going to be a big loss for us. We lost a major icon of our party,” BRISSON said.
Oxford member of Parliament Dave MacKENZIE remembered SARGENT as a “great lady” who put her family before politics.
“She thought the world of her children and grandchildren. She was so proud of all of their accomplishments.&rdquo
Predeceased by her husband Clifford, SARGENT is survived by her two daughters, Sherry CAMBOIA and Joanna SARGENT, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Her daughters remembered a woman of uncommon compassion and tremendous energy.
CAMBOIA described her mother as the “original tree hugger,” saying SARGENT's ardent environmentalism came well before conservation became a popular movement.
SARGENT was also a gifted writer and wrote her memoirs -- “scribbles,&rdquo she called them -- by hand.
SARGENT was also very fond of music and loved singing and dancing. During their youths, SARGENT and her husband would often visit the Stork Club in Port Stanley and dazzle other visitors with their accomplished dancing.
SARGENT's family is inviting Friends to Friday's visitation at the Smith-LeRoy Funeral Home from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at the Berean Bible Church on Saturday at 1 p.m.

David PARTRIDGE, Painter And Sculptor (1919-2006)
With a 'virtuosity of hammering,' his hard-edged, tactile and sculptural Naillies transformed nails and wood into art forms that are both evocative and spiritual, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
What came first, the nail or the hammer? That is the question people ponder about artist David PARTRIDGE. Although he began his artistic career as a painter and a printmaker, he is best known for his Naillies. To create them, he would begin with a piece of plywood, although he was known to use doors, beams and other surfaces, which he sometimes covered in buffed or abraded aluminum. Then he would hammer in nails of all sorts (aluminum, copper and steel) and lengths, beginning with the shortest to create a "relief sculpture." According to his fancy, he polished or trimmed the hammered nail heads, wrapped the Naillie in duct tape to give the surface more texture and lacquered or painted portions of the finished work.
The Naillies were quite spectacular, said artist Tony URQUHART, who was mentored by Mr. PARTRIDGE in the 1950s. Although a very different type of artist, Mr. URQUHART also creates sculptural collages or "boxes" out of wood, nails and many other things. "They were things that had never been done before and they were made at a very high level." And they also reflected many of the artistic and social concerns of the time.
Besides the visual, tactile and auditory sensations of the works, Mr. URQUHART was really impressed by "the virtuosity of his hammering." By that, he meant Mr. PARTRIDGE's workmanship in getting the nails in straight and figuring out how deep to hammer them. "I couldn't do that," he said. "If you X-rayed one of my boxes. I would be embarrassed because the nails go in at different angles and now I pre-drill them. But with the Naillies, one nail out of line and …"
Mr. PARTRIDGE was an intensely creative person who seemed to make art instinctively and organically rather than consciously and deliberately. His daughter, Kate, says his life was a series of creative cycles interspersed with down or resting phases until something dramatic happened in his life or his environment, and that would spark another creative synergy.
He is curiously not well known, said artist Ron BLOORE, who had known Mr. PARTRIDGE as an artist and a friend since the late 1950s. "That guy had a real collection of weird wild nails." The works, especially the later ones, sometimes got to be quasi-religious or spiritual, he said, because they explored "a visionary experience."
David Gerry PARTRIDGE was the youngest child of Albert Gerry and Edith (née HARPHAM) PARTRIDGE. His favourite toy as a child was a hammer, which he used to drag around with him and hit things although not always from a creative impulse. One of his grandfathers was a roofer, and the other was an undertaker, so that's where he may have inherited his affinity for hammering nails, his wife suggested this week. His other great love was flying, a passion that can be dated to seeing his first airplane in the 1920s on a family visit to Florida.
His father was a senior executive with Goodyear Tire, and so David, his mother and his older sisters, Elspeth and Emily, moved across the Atlantic in 1928 when Mr. PARTRIDGE was transferred to England. During the seven years that his father served as president of the British firm, David went to Mostyn House School in Cheshire, then Radley College in Oxfordshire. When they moved to Canada in 1935 so that Albert PARTRIDGE could head the Canadian operations of Goodyear, David was sent to Trinity College School in Port Hope.
That's where he met Edward CAYLEY, who always called him Birdy and considered him his closest friend for the next 76 years. "We were opposites. He was stubborn and impatient, but for some reason we got on," said Mr. CAYLEY, noting that his friend had a great sense of humour. "He was always restless, and that's where the creativity came in."
After Trinity College School, Mr. PARTRIDGE went to Trinity College at the University of Toronto, concentrating on English, history and geology, and graduated in 1941. He immediately enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force, where he scored so highly on his training courses that he was made a flight instructor and spent the war, much to his chagrin, on this side of the Atlantic.
On June 14, 1943, he married Helen Rosemary ANNESLEY (always known as Tibs), who was serving as a Women's Royal Naval Service. The couple had known each other slightly at university until their final year, when his mother spotted Ms. ANNESLEY at a reception for visiting parents and told her son that he should "marry that girl."
The year after they had both graduated, they began seeing each other socially, and became even closer when both of them were posted to Ottawa, she with the Royal Canadian Navy and he with the air force. By then, his mother was dead and it was her mother who was issuing the directives that Mr. PARTRIDGE should "marry that girl."
After the war, the PARTRIDGEs moved to St. Catharines, Ontario, where he taught art first at Appleby College and then at Ridley College. Their two children -- Katharine (always called Kate), a psychologist, and John, a reporter at The Globe and Mail -- were born there in 1945 and 1947. This was the period in which he was finding himself as a water colourist and a printmaker.
He won a British Council scholarship to study at the Slade School at the University of London, so the whole family lived in Hampstead for the academic year 1950-51. Afterward, Mr. PARTRIDGE enthused about working with artists Tom Monnington and Edward Ardizzone, the "wonderful introduction into etching and engraving" he received from John Buckland-Wright, and the stimulation of being in contact with Graham Sutherland and John Piper, among other Slade professors.
After returning to Canada, he taught high school art at St. Catharines Collegiate and Vocational Institute, co-founded the St. Catharines Art Association and the St. Catharines Public Library Art Gallery (and was its first curator) and taught summer school at Queen's, the same place he had himself studied a decade earlier.
The PARTRIDGEs, who were both anglophiles, lived in Sussex with their children from 1956 to 1958 and for a longer stint beginning in 1960. All the while, he was showing in group and solo exhibitions in Canada and abroad. In February and March of 1958, he was studying etching and engraving with William Hayter at Atelier 17 in Paris when he had a creative breakthrough.
"I was fascinated by the irregular surfaces of deep-etched copper and zinc plates, irrespective of their purpose in printing. They became low-relief sculptures, which seemed to my ex-pilot's eyes like aerial views of topography," is the way he described the process later. One Saturday, he was gallery-hopping and came across an exhibition by Hungarian sculptor Zoltan Kemeny that he described as "bas-reliefs using all manner of metal bits and pieces, welded into an even more exciting aerial vision than the etched plates had provided."
The eureka moment came in Ottawa (where the family was then living) the following winter when he came across a piece of plywood left over from a renovation. "Nails were at hand and a hammer! I descended to the basement and made my first nail sculpture." The Naillies, as Mr. PARTRIDGE called them, were born. Wood, the most basic building material, became a platform for work that undulated with rhythm, light and texture. Hard-edged, tactile and sculptural, Naillies transcended their utilitarian origins and transformed nails and wood into something evocative and spiritual. Naillies seemed too skinny a word for a new art form, so at a dinner party with Alan Jarvis of the National Gallery and his wife, Mrs. PARTRIDGE came up with the term "configurations."
He had his first solo exhibition of paintings, drawings and configurations at the Robertson Galleries in Ottawa in October of 1960, the same year he gave up full-time teaching and moved his family back to England. They stayed until 1974. Since then, Naillies have been acquired by the National Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Tate Gallery, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Gallery of New South Wales and many other institutions. He also won commissions, such as Metropolis, a huge mural for the new city hall in Toronto and the Royal Canadian Air Force Memorial in Westminster Cathedral in London.
After returning from England, they settled in Toronto, spending summers at a cottage near Stony Lake, Ontario, that they bought from Mrs. PARTRIDGE's family. By 1980, Mr. PARTRIDGE, who had some spare cash after having sold a big Naillie, indulged his unquenchable love of flying by buying himself a do-it-yourself kit for an ultra-light plane. He partially constructed it at his studio on Queen Street and then hauled it up to the cottage, where he attached floats and set off across the lake, never having flown that kind of plane before.
He took some great photographs, said Mrs. PARTRIDGE, by tying a string around his big toe and attaching it to a camera "so he could fly with both hands, which he needed to do, and his big toe would pull on the thread and snap a photograph." Once again, he was interested in aerial views of the landscape, the same topographical impressions that he created in his Naillies.
About this time, Mr. PARTRIDGE reconnected with his old friend Ed CAYLEY, who had also been living abroad, by phoning to ask: "Do you still like movies?" The two men resumed a ritual weekly trip to the movies that had begun in their undergraduate days at the University of Toronto. After Mr. PARTRIDGE had a stroke a little more than three years ago that seriously hampered his mobility, Mr. CAYLEY brought lunch and a DVD to watch with his old friend at home.
David Gerry PARTRIDGE was born on October 5, 1919, in Akron, Ohio. He died of heart disease on December 11, 2006, after a stroke and a heart attack. He was 87. He is survived by his wife, Tibs, his daughter Kate, his son John and their spouses. There will be a public graveside service today at 10 a.m. at Saint_James-the-Less Cemetery in Toronto.

Ian SCOTT, 72: Former attorney general
'He was an old-fashioned progressive Liberal'
By Ian URQUHART, Queen's Park Columnist
The obituaries today will describe Ian SCOTT as attorney general of Ontario from 1985 to 1990.
But that description does not do him justice, for SCOTT was more than a mere cabinet minister; he was the heart and soul of the provincial Liberal government during a remarkably reformist era in the late 1980s.
That government was led, of course, by David PETERSON, and also featured the likes of Robert Nixon and Sean Conway.
But it was SCOTT who infused Peterson's government with its reformist zeal.
"He was an old-fashioned progressive Liberal," recalled Conway about his former cabinet colleague yesterday after news of SCOTT's death, at age 72, had circulated. "He really did believe government was a positive influence in people's lives."
Thus, in a relatively brief time span from 1985 to 1990, SCOTT's fingerprints were all over a series of initiatives, including, most significantly, the negotiation of an accord with the New Democrats to end the 42-year reign of the Progressive Conservatives at Queen's Park. The Liberal negotiating team was comprised of SCOTT, Conway and Nixon.
Once the Liberals were in office, SCOTT had a major hand in the introduction of pay equity, the ban on extra-billing, freedom-of-information legislation, class-action lawsuits, no-fault auto insurance, the negotiation of native land claims, abolition of the title of Queen's Counsel, a merit-based system of appointing judges, and restructuring of the courts.
When police insisted on laying yet another futile charge against the Morgentaler abortion clinic in Toronto, SCOTT used his prerogative as attorney general to stay the proceedings.
On another major Liberal initiative -- the extension of full funding to Catholic schools -- SCOTT personally argued the government's case before the Supreme Court, and won.
SCOTT was less successful in arguing internally against the "distinct society" clause of the Meech Lake accord, which he saw as dangerously ambiguous.
As the Meech talks neared a conclusion, PETERSON brought SCOTT in to address the other premiers on the issue.
"I made my points, but I could see that my target audience, Robert Bourassa (premier of Quebec) was not amused by what I had to say," SCOTT recalled later in his memoir. "We were dismissed somewhat icily.
"So the deal (Meech) was made. When it was done, I felt a deep malaise. I was full of misgivings about the wisdom of what we had done; anything, I thought, that rested on a fundamental ambiguity was doomed to failure at some point or other."
SCOTT considered resigning in the wake of Meech, but he decided not to because it would have been "a rebuke to PETERSON" and would have removed him from any future influence on the course of the constitutional talks.
Later, SCOTT came around to the view that Meech was "the best deal that we were ever likely to get."
In 1990, SCOTT was also on the losing side of an argument inside the Liberal government on whether an election should be called one year early.
Notwithstanding the misgivings of SCOTT and others in cabinet (including Conway and Greg Sorbara, now minister of finance in Dalton McGuinty's government,) PETERSON decided to go early, and lost.
But SCOTT narrowly won his own downtown Toronto seat and took a front seat in the opposition benches. "After two years in opposition, however, I found myself increasingly disenchanted," wrote SCOTT in his memoir in explaining his decision to quit the Legislature in 1992.
Thus ended a political career that was as brief as it was brilliant.
And during his seven years in the limelight, SCOTT carried with him the burden of a secret: that he was gay.
Adding to SCOTT's burden was the discovery soon after he became attorney general that his live-in lover was Human Immunodeficiency Virus positive.
Within the cozy confines of Queen's Park, SCOTT's sexual orientation was well known, but the general public remained oblivious to it. Occasionally, Queen's Park reporters -- usually from the Toronto Sun -- would challenge SCOTT about the matter, and his answer was always the same: "Print what you dare." They never did.
It remained for SCOTT himself to print the secret in 2001 in his memoir, To Make a Difference.
SCOTT wrote that he kept his sexual orientation in the closet when he entered politics because he felt that the Ontario of that time was unready to deal with the issue.
"And I saw no reason to make what would have been a futile attempt to change it," he added.
Now, two decades later, a gay politician is, if not commonplace, at least no longer shocking.
At Queen's Park, for example, we have a minister of health and a minister of education who are openly gay, and no one is making a fuss about it.
That, too, is part of SCOTT's legacy.
