INSPIRATION: BLUEMICS

April 14, 2015

 

Today’s inspiration comes from Bluemics in Okayama, Japan. Kimiko’s pottery reminds me of Indigo dyeing, not only because of the colors, but some pieces appear almost like they were pleated or folded. She hand paints each line with a cobalt underglaze and then the pieces are glost-fired in a gas-fired kiln for twelve hours.

AN INDIGO BEDROOM

Usually when we go to the desert we camp, but this geodesic dome could change that if we ever get to Joshua Tree.

I am so taken with these master Shibori artists. I can’t believe how fast and precise they are!
 
 


 

BEAUTIFUL BORO

February 26, 2015

 

Lately, Japanese Boro has been catching my attention. The way the fabric (mostly Indigo) is patched, mended, and layered is truly unique and embodies such a rich history of those who once used the materials. Remodelista has a great feature, which describes this beautiful technique.
