Textile Design 25:Hydrangea


The petals of a newly flowering Hydrangea are white 
Gradually they change from pale to light blue.
Lastly they progress to a deep blue.
A cloud covered garden after a long spell of Japan's rainy season shimmers
with various shades of blue on every petal.
My heart is permeated by blue.

Textile Design 24: Morning Glory

The note from Textile Designer, Katsuji Wakisaka on the textile "Morning Glory"

Summer mornings, the flowers bloom.
One day they shall wither away.
As they steadily grow their shoots burst forth,
The impression of a large flower forcefully opening up is so refreshing.
Naturally, the summer flowers inspire me.

(Written by Katsuji Wakisaka, Translated by Rishy Kashyap)

Textile Design 23: Canal

Today's featured textile design is "Canal"

Taking a walk every morning through Nanzenji,
located in a small neighborhood where the canal water flows towards,
The echo of its murmur as it flows
along the road I am walking, resounds in my heart.
The villas around this area also draw from
this canal's water to make a small pond in their yards.
This Kyoto canal, made by tunneling an aqueduct from Lake Biwa
through the mountains, draws water
all the way to Kyoto
providing to Kyoto its tap water.
