fewer words…and thinking about time,

yes, i’m back. Japan was wonderful, of course. the tour was amazing. i’ve written a couple of post-tour posts but after re-reading them nothing really feels right. too many words. so for now, i’ll just leave you with this:

and this-

i’ll be selecting some of these to put into the shop in a couple of days but thought it would be fun to photograph them and put them up for inspiration. these were all numbered with their pattern numbers…some as high as the 7000’s.
these shibori samples were found in Arimatsu, Japan and remind me how skill can develop over time if one is willing to put time into practice. are we still willing to allow art and craft to be created in this way? these are things i wonder about these days… ~ these seem to focus on makiage, makinui,orinui,boshi,muira and kanoko techniques. there literally must have been 10’s of 1000’s made over time. mind boggling. and beautiful. part of their beauty is what this represents. at least to me.
