These small works range from approx. 6″x 9″ to 10″ x 12.” I am experimenting with Japanese Katazome techniques on washi (handmade kozo). I first learned these techniques on fabric from John Marshall. My goal with this work is to achieve differentiation between the various stenciled and painted layers, hopefully giving the work depth and surface interest. The results you see here are inconsistent, and I think I understand which variables to change next time. I am excited about the possibilities of this technique and intend to explore it further!
Works on Cotton
I created these works on cotton fabric, using fiber-reactive dyes and other pigments including oil sticks and colored pencils.
