Two butterflies kumo shibori wall art

Two butterflies shibori wall art


I like butterflies!  I think it is a combination of their bright colors and the way they waft through gardens like animate flowers.  As a result, they end up in my art on a regular basis.  This pair of butterflies are in stark blue and white, stitched and tied with a method of shibori known as “kumo” or “the spider’s web” for the tracery of lines across the dye surface.  The result is an intricate webbed pattern in the shape of the butterflies’ wings.  The antennae are done with “ori-nui” or stitched shibori (because how would the butterflies see otherwise?).  This is an original picture, there will never be one exactly like it again!


Picture dimensions 13 1/2 by 10 1/2 inches, mat dimensions 20 by 16 inches.  The fabric of this art is cotton, dyed with fiber reactive dye.
