Minoan Minnow Repeat

I’m in an in-between state of foggy mental chaos. Our visitor has left, I’m trying to sort out priorities for the coming weeks in anticipation of participating in the Art at St. Kate’s show. Weather is gorgeous and I’m easily distracted by the garden, among other things! Meanwhile, here is the repeat of the Minoan Minnow table runner design. (I like the sound of that; and it reminds me a bit of Minoan design.) The repeat is approx 9×12.” I will have some of these at the St. Kate’s event.

I use the materials and techniques of the Japanese art of katazome (paste resist stencil dyeing) to capture my experience of nature. My work celebrates daily meetings with the wild birds, plants, and lake breezes of my local urban surroundings.

  1. I showed some of my friends your blog and they were all surprised and happy that someone overseas was creating such beautiful katazome!

    I love the colors and the waves especially!

  2. I love designs with symmetry to them, especially when an element has been rotated. I wonder if this could somehow work with a fourway rotation? Great title.

  3. That’s an interesting idea. A stencil or other repeat element is also more useful when can repeat on all sides.
