silk this time

December 11, 2011

in all previous bojagi, the size of the scraps  have controlled the design

this time I’ve decided to try designing on paper first

inspired by “Polyphonic White”  by Paul Klee, I’ve worked out a block size and colour placement

 

using all natural dyed silk samples, block sizes will be somewhat restricted

and I haven’t followed the colours in the painting

 there is a nice little pile of “maybe and what if’s”

this is the first time I have used one fibre and weight of fabric

may have to get out the dye pots – not ’till after Christmas!

“We learn to see what flows beneath.

We learn the prehistory of the visible.

We learn to dig deep and to lay bare, to explain, to analyse.”

Paul Klee
