Title: Venerable Kimono w Cherry Blossom Obi
Description: clay, fired cone 6
Size: 11.5″x 5″ 2″ in frame
This one of a series of kimono’s that I have made after two amazing trips to Japan, but my fascination with textiles and design began as a 6 yr old, when I began making my own original paper doll clothing. My degree is in Fashion design from Pratt Institute and my design teacher was the first Japanese person I had ever known. I’ve incorporated many actual garment making details into my clay work.
