Kabuki Crest 15

One of my recent small one of a kind print. Available here.

The central motif is a family crest belonging to an acting family from Japanese Kabuki theatre. This Edo pattern was originally printed as a souvenir for Kabuki enthusiasts. Later the design was used to decorate clothing and small personal objects. I am continuing this tradition.

Barns Art Market in Toronto/Africa Pot 1

Off to the Barns Art Market at the Wychwood Barns in Toronto tomorrow with a batch of new prints.  Over this last week I made 42 new one of a kind small prints as I almost sold out of the ones I made for my last show.

Bamboo and Water

My latest large scale (20" x 26") print, one of a kind.  I am still reimagining the bamboo forest I walked through in Kyoto.

Available here.

Icing Glaze Vase

Back to printing West German vases - this time in black and white - and just concentrating on the textural quality of the glazes.

I like this one.  It is pretty darn cheerful with the big circles.  I think those designers had a lot of fun with their creations.

Available here.
