Yes, "the floating world". Beautiful. Japanese prints are amazing!
Hi Penny, thanks so much for the lovely compliment. I just deleted what I wrote previously because it sounded a little incoherent. I was wondering if you were familiar with the term ukiyo - "the floating world" which is how the art of the Edo period is often described.
I love the Edo period and Japanese design in general. You incorporate the aesthetic in to your fabric very well.
Lisa, I think artist's signatures are often every bit as expressive and beautiful as their art. That seems especially true in Japanese and other asian works where writing itself is an art form.
Cal ~ it is so interesting to have a peak into the inspiration and/or intent of the designer! Especially for designs that seem to speak to us, but we are not sure why. Thank you for the insight!
Thank you Lisa! I'll make a note to include a picture of this fabric. It came out very nicely.
The Japanese titles I give to these pieces have various meanings - usually either the subject, meanings or artist's name. In this case it is the elegant signature and seal of Ganku, a famous painter from Japan's Edo period.
I am crazy about this one! Would love to see a photo of it printed out. The Japanese word that you use for each design - is that the color name?
Thank you so much anniedeb!
