Been using this homemade ceramic dish as palatte, it’s much easier to wash and it doesn’t topple or spill because of the weight. Should have made more of these dishes.

Cloud Shrine

Been working on this illustration bit by bit for more than a week. Finally finished it in 15 hours straight on a rainy Sunday.

Drew inspiration from all the shrine visits in Kyushu last year. Adding to my Sky Island Series, naming it “Cloud Shrine (雲神社)”.

Moriyama Kasuri Factory 久留米絣 森山絣工房

Thanks to Kayoko san from the Matsuo Washi Factory, we get to visit to the famed Moriyama Kasuri Factory 久留米絣 森山絣工房 and learn about the Japan traditional Kurume Kasuri (Shibori Textile). This technique has a long history spanning over 200 years and originated by a girl Den Inoue, whose curiosity inspired her to create Kasuri, technique to twine and dye vertical threads and horizontal ones together so as to weave up a design. Kurume Kasuri is now a nationally-designated Important intangible cultural property.

Kasuri requires about 30 procedures, from Pattern designing, Tekukuri (Hand Twining), Aizome (Indigo Dye), to Teori (Hand Weaving). Moriyama Kasuri factory is well known for these and titled as the Kogara no Moriyama (Elaborately Pattern Moriyama).

We met the head of the family Torao Moriyama, the fifth master Tetsuhiro Moriyama and her amazing wife who taught us the Kasuri Workshop.

I documented these enriching experience into videos and showcased together with my art installation at the Studio Kura Residency Exhibition.

Do check out their facebook page here.
