ITOME YUZEN DYEING PROCESS
The ITOME YUZEN dyeing technique mainly has about 30 processes.
I was born in Shizuoka prefecture. My grandfather really loves japanese traditional garden and Japanese bonsai plant, And my grandmother's father managed Japanese green tea shop in Mishima-city in Shizuoka.The Japanese green tea is indigenous product in Shizuoka.When I was a child, I really like the Mt.Fuji and a Japanese green tea , a rice cracker, Japanese traditional garden, Japanese bonsai plant etc, so I am interested in Japanese traditional culture.
I was born in Susono-city in Shizuoka prefecture. The city is located along the base of Mount Fuji. I feel that the image of Mount Fuji has been imprinted onto my mind.When I saw Hokusai's Mount Fuji,I felt the sense as if I was right in front of the mountain itself.
ITOME YUZEN DYEING TECHNIQUE
My almost works are made of "ITOME YUZEN DYEING" on the silk now. ITOME YUZEN DYEING TECHNIQUE was born in about 300 hundred years ago in Japan. That technique has been beeing for kimono 's decoration. The most interesting process is to put a fine line of rice cake on silk using SHIBUZUTSU. SHIBUDUTSU is made of a persimmon juice-coated Japanese paper. It is like a decoration whip cream tool.
The material of ITOME YUZEN DYEING is so interesting. The main materials are an acid dyes and a silk, a rice cake, a soy bean juice,a marine alga.So ITOME YUZEN DYEING TECHNIQUE is like cooking, It is really natural. If you want to look that technique process, you can see more detail at a CHANNEL page
I just start to make an entry my diary about my art act from today.
