ink and water...

Each band results from the lightest touch of a dipped in ink stick on the surface of still water.
Calm, concentrated, avoiding any unnecessary movement and in complete silence I spent a few hours yesterday creating wavy patterns and printing them on Japanese papers. 


  1. ooo what lovely suminagashi (I have trouble getting the ink to float whenever I do it.... it just wants to drop to the bottom like a stone - yours is stunning!)

  2. Mesmerising, tantalising meditation...

  3. That looks contemplative and restorative. Good. Hope it means you are feeling better. The patterns are beautiful by the way but more concerned that you are feeling better!

  4. What a wonderful activity! I must be sure to try it soon...
