homemade inks and graphite
8" x 8"

Like Nosegay, this piece was created with two stencils of lace and a vintage quilt pattern painted with homemade inks from fugitive pigments: nettles, avocado skins and black tea. If granted access to a wood shop, I would love to create moku hanga or Japanese-style woodblock prints to utilize these inks and create editions for more potential sculptural prints.
