I unwrapped all the pieces of pottery I purchased on Friday and set them out on my printing table. I then started measuring and cutting squares of white cotton.
My plan...to paint and print some Furoshiki cloths for wrapping up these beautiful pieces of pottery. For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, Furoshiki is the Japanese art of using squares of fabric to wrap things. You may want to take a look at the November 24 Issue of Julie B Booth Surface Design News, along with the December 1 Extra Issue for more information, including a few recommended books.
Before getting to the painting and printing, I wanted to be sure I cut the correct square sizes for the various bowls and teacups. After a little trial and error, I worked out the sizes for three gifts.
As I was shooting the photos for this post, I had a duh moment! Here I was taking some perfect shots for this month's extension of the Searching for Roy G Biv Challenge! Yes, Jennifer and I are extending the fun and on the third Thursday of this month (December 20) we encourage those of you who are playing along to post photos of White. I'll be saving some shots of these wraps for that date.
