I was late with my Christmas post, and now Chinese new year. I am seriously catching up.
Happy year of the Ox. This was a postcard I picked up in Japan, by unicef. I love the stylised image. When enlarged, you can actually see what looks like weave structure. A collage of different fabrics to form the image.
To add to the occaision, this weave sample that I did a year ago seems appropriate. I was trying to create the imagery of firecrackers into a weave.....
It is a double weave based on the same technique for the cotton piece from my first post. This was the precursor to that piece of weaving.
