(yet another) Recap: a dye test for Aqua Dragon Dress (2006).
And a photo of a cool place near my house just yesterday, probably to be the last sunny day of August.
“Is it ‘flowing’?”
Yours truly, trying on one of her prototypes, which, a year later, became a piece called “Aqua Dragon Dress 2”. What she’s standing in is called “pre-relocation mess”.
Autumn 2005, Kawasaki, Japan.
Top: a spring bouquet and my analogue fabric dyeing knowledge base packed with last 15yrs of notes on my experiments and know-how passed on mostly from Mr. S at the Tokyo dye material manufacturer, now retired, who never failed to come up with solutions and workarounds, always from the place of “yes you can”, which was especially helpful when I was ready to quit after a total mess-up in 2003.
Bottom: dye experiments, stored in my paulownia wood treasure chest.
