I am currently having an exhibition of naturally dyed silk scarves and indigo dyed tapestries in Ginza at a small gallery. I am exhibiting with Mayumi Ikuta a lacquer artist. It is a simple event. I am not exhibiting pieces that I have woven from my own silk like kimono etc. It is too confusing to exhibit my high-end stuff with simpler work. Even mixing stencil dye and shibori as well as linen and cotton and silk pieces is confusing. Quite a few people who have caught me on TV in the past year seem have come expecting to see what they have seen on TV. They are a little disappointed because it is a natural dying exhibit. The work is still good!
