A Favorite Subject with his Prey

The other day on my morning walk I saw a Great Blue Heron fishing in the small lake near my home. It looks like it has caught a baby bullhead.


Below is my minnow design pasted, stretched and ready to dye. My recent batch of rice paste was easier to handle with this rather challenging stencil.

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 love the strong simplicity of your designs, rather like those of the heron.The pictures you are using in your under -the -title -header are really lovely.
