Pile of Pillows

Just completed a batch of Katazome (stencil-dyed) pillows, which I'll be showing in Art-A-Whirl this coming weekend (May 15-17, 2009). Art-A-Whirl is an open studio and gallery tour of Northeast Minneapolis featuring more than 600 NEMAA artists, including; potters, tile makers, painters, sculptors, musicians, photographers, glass blowers, printmakers, jewelry makers, textile designers and more! I’ll be participating through Castle Building and Remodeling, Inc., 2600 Johnson St. NE, Minneapolis, MN 55418. Please stop by!

The prints behind the sofa are part of a 12-piece stencil-dyed calendar (on Kozo) by Serizawa Keisuke (year 1971).
