Junko Oki

I have this blog a bit abandoned…. Have a couple more posts lined up on portuguese fashion and… something new!

But these days I’ve been out of the internet/computer as much as I can. Creating and researching on textiles and embroidery techniques. Oh, and enjoying the sunny Spring days.

So today I decided to share the work of Junko Oki.

Her site/blog is in japanese, but as I could understand, her work, under the name of Woky Shoten, is descibed as a “free movement of the line to make a simple repetition of work”, and relates to her grandfather’s memories.

How interesting that the artistic expression through fabric and thread is most often chosen by women. I always find intriguing when men use that as material. Need to do some more research on that.

Some other inspiring textile sources: Luxe-toile, World of Textiles,  Kathryn Clark, Textile Arts Center and Karen Barbé
