Sekka det

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

It was a day too humid to breathe. The moisture hung in the air, but we hung out by the indigo dye vat anyway. The cicadas were making their droning sounds in the trees, typical for late August. Later a little rain moved in.

The detail on this piece of cotton is Itajime, board clamping. While the patterning may not reflect authentic Sekka patterning, I used the same technique. The indigo and white remind me of yukata (summer kimono) that are so cooling to wear in the summer heat.

Tomorrow will be another day with indigo, but this time I will take it to Artspace and demonstrate a few aspects of dyeing with it at the family fun fest. たのしいなあ!How much fun!
